Default Serial ATA and IDE config

ok. i'm running on a asus p4p 800 deluxe. i recently installed a WD Raptor as my main. i also have two ide (a 60gig and 20gig) harddrives. as of now in my bios it reads

60gig as primary master
20gig as primary slave
WD raptor as fourth master

my computer runs fine. i'm planning on getting rid of the 20gig and just keeping the 60gig for backup. i just want to know if i should keep the 60gig as primary master or primary slave.

do primary slave, use the Raptor as your primary master.

you have to leave it as master.

oh... or try having it as the secondary master, unless you have the CD/DVD drives as secondary masters
