Game disks require quite a bit of read speed and we can achieve this by setting up two hard disks in RAID 0 configuration in the Windows Operating System. There is no need to use raid cards, software raid from disk management is enough. Here is how we can do it.

1. Open "Disk Management", type "diskmgmt.msc" in start menu and click the first option in search result (Figure 1).
