I am building a PC where I will do a lot of graphic related work.

I was thinking about getting an 64 GB SSD and a 1 TB mechanical drive.

My question is, will I get the most out of the SSD by loading windows and all of the program files on my SDD and using the 1 TB drive as a slave?

I will be getting a mobo with the Z68 chipset so there is the "Smart Response Technology" features. In that case would I do the opposite and load windows and program files on the mechanical drive?

Storage details:
- Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
- Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
