Hello,
I am looking at getting a second m.2 drive. My Motherboard is the Asus ROG Maximus Hero XI.
I have my GPU in the PCIe x16_1, my capture card in the PCIe x16_2 slot.
I was wondering if my second m.2 slot would interfere with these or any of my SATA6G ports?
I found the manual confusing to understand.

Secondly, this isn't about Mobo's. But if I get a second M.2 drive I am looking at changing my two HDDs 4TB into a RAID.
I have never done this and wondering which configuration would be best?
On the RAID Drives I will have my graphics for my streams, recording of my streams and YouTube content.
Secondly, I also do editing for work which is where all of the files are kept.
I was thinking of doing RAID 0 to give me 8TB of storage. I already have an external back up drive.
Would people recommend RAID 1 instead to give me an additional back up?
