Hi and thanks in advance. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm building a new rig with a gigabyte 990fxa-ud5 motherboard it's sata 6.0 compatible. I'm going to use a 6.0 velociraptor 10,000 rpm. Can I use a 3.0 sata 7200 rpm for my storage? I just want to make sure I get the right hard drive. I've read alot of posts but I'm not sure if cache, rpm, and 3.0gb or 6.0 matter in choosing a storage drive for everything except my os and games. I want to make sure it works right. I'm sorry to post another raid question. But I hope it's one somebody here can answer and it not annoy them or take much time. Thanks again.
