Is this the correct way? I just don't want to make any mistakes...

1. Have both SSD+HDD plugged in
2. Setup SATA controller to Raid
3. Install Windows 7 to hard drive
4. Update chipset drivers RST drivers
5. Reboot
6. Go to RST panel
7. Dedicate entire storage to cache

I disagree. For me, SRT is the best choice with a 60GB SSD. With a 120GB SSD using it as a boot drive would be my choice. My OS and key apps usually end up taking up more than 60GB and that is the deciding factor for me.

The first time you use your computer with the SSD set to SRT you won't notice much of a difference. Over time it will speed up your system more and more (with common tasks). Eventually common tasks will perform virtually the same as though the OS and associated apps were installed directly on the SSD while other things will at worst perform at the basic HDD speeds. The big benefit is that you won't need to worry about fitting everything in, in only 60GB. The system can worry about it for you.
