I am building a new computer (already purchased the parts, just waiting on them to arrive), and I am planning to use a SSD as the boot drive. My dad suggested moving the Program Files (and Program Files x86) and the Users directory to my secondary hard drive. So here are my questions:
Will I see a performance hit by moving these off the SSD? I had thought that the point of having my program installations on the SSD was to reduce the load time of common programs.
I have seen at least one discussion on here about moving the Users folder to a secondary drive. Would this process also work for the Program Files and x86 folders?
My plan is to put Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on this machine. A friend of mine said he'd read about tweaks that you need to make when using a SSD with Windows. Is this the case? If so, what do I need to do differently from a traditional HDD? (I'm used to just plugging the drive in and starting to use it).
Thanks in advance for all the help. If it helps, here is the list of parts that I have ordered from Newegg. I'm excited for the new system (considering it's my first really powerful computer), but also want to get things started right.
