Default Hard Drive Question

Just built my machine and I bought a WD Black 1TB drive and plan on doing gaming, I could get another drive that would run faster for gaming, if there is one. Anyone have any ideas?

What model number is your drive?

SSD would run faster, so would faster RPM drives depending on how fast your current one is.

1TB Black will be 7200rpm. Only thing faster that makes sense is an SSD.

Im a little new to multiple drives, but I could get an SSD for gaming and just use the 1TB for storage correct?

Yes. Depends on how big you go with that SSD. You can always get a 60GB for OS and some games or get 120GB+ which will house most all common programs or games.
