    So got my new mac pro(glad im not still waiting) So I want to add a SSD to store my audio sample but have a few questions.

    1. what do I set the drive up as? Just a second disk?

    2. What do I need as far as cables or is there already a sata in the second emtpy drive bay?

    3. What brand to buy? some better than other?

    1. Format as Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

    2. You will be best off with something like this or this.

    3. Many people go with Intel. Corsair and Crucial are also popular ones I have heard of.

    Be careful, with some SSDs, they will degrade overtime with misuse such as writing to it too much. Some of the newer SSDs aren't supposed to do this though.
