I'm about to build a new system and want to be able to quickly change hard drives for different OS's. I do not want to go multi-boot w/partitions on this pc.  I have trays for 'PATA' and 1 newer SATA drive, 500 GB.  Not sure if it'll make much diff but I don't think solid-state is worth the bucks. I could load games on the SATA and put the OS's on the slower drives in the trays.  I'm not sure if I want to get a removable tray(s) for SATA drives (and maybe get another SATA drive).

One reason for removable drives is to keep some data isolated from surfing the net. Any updates would be the rare connection. Otherwise will move anything by flashdrive or just burn it. Unless there is a way I could put various OS's on the SATA drive and be certain any infection cannot 'see' another partition ....

I'm not much of a gamer yet but need to do some video editing.  Any thoughts on where to put games & where to put OS's, or if it'll matter at all? Thanx in advance.
