Im determining which I should buy, Samsung SSD 250GB or 500GB.
I already have a 1 TB hard drive. And do you have some tips for which programs to install to the SSD and to the Hard drive. Sorry if my English is a bit bad.

An SSD drive make the system super responsive. To make good use of SSD drive, install the operating system to the SSD and install frequently used applications and games (if space allows you) to the SSD drive makes the overall system snappy. Avoid storing file like videos, music or programs setup files which waste the precious space on a SSD drive. Also dont make the SSD drive Full, that reduces the drives performance quite a lot. So leave some free space like 5GB or more.

Im also thinking about buying a very fast 2TB hard drive. i've seen this one: http://www.amazon.com/BUFFALO-DriveStation-Ultra-Drive-Cache/dp/B00C0NWAUS%3FSubscriptionId%3DAKIAICE7LOAJMK3SSLPA%26tag%3Dcshopper-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB00C0NWAUS

It says that the hard drive is almost as fast as the SSD, and it has 8x more storage...
Is this a better choice?

I personally don´t know that one but since it´s still on USB 3.0 I doubt it will beat an internal SSD.

If you are thinking about getting a HDD instead, I would definately get a fast internal one. Heck, if you want to go all in, you can also get two HDDs and use them in RAID.

Never the less, you always pay more per GB on a SSD than you do on a HDD.
