    G74SX: What does this all mean, when running an SSD ?

    Trying to decide what size HDD to get, but trying to figure out my max total size...

    Current Setup:

    - Bay 1: 180GB INTEL SSD
    - Bay 2: Seagate 750GB
    - Optical Bay: WD 160GB <-- Looking to replace this one

    ASUS Spec: *1 : dual HDD support up to 1.5TB / Solid State Hybrid drive up to 1TB

    With not having a Hybrid drive but a full SSD drive, where do I stand ?

    With my current setup I have a total storage of 1090GB (1014GB usable) currently.

    Which option falls into Asus Spec:

    1) 750GB HDD + 750GB HDD + 180GB SSD (since the SSD is not a hybrid or HDD) = 1.5TB Plus any size SSD ?

    2) 750GB HDD + 500GB HDD + 180GB SSD (250GB max SSD size) = Mix of SSD and HDD, but staying within 1.5TB total ?

    3) I would think 1TB max doesn't apply since I am already at 1090GB (1014GB usable) ?

    4) Does Optical bay storage size matter ?

    5) Is the 1.5TB limit for bay 1 and 2 only and the Optical bay (still a SATA port so I assume no) is unlimited ? SSD in bay 1 + 1TB in bay 2 + 1TB+ in bay 3 ?

    Sorry for all the questions, but there is a lot of variables and couldn't a lot of info on this subject....
