i have a new samsung 840 EVO 120 gb. i never used. So i put windows on SSD. Then all other Programs on Hard drive?
Well...
Ideally, you have the applications on the SSD as well.
But being only 120GB, you WILL run into issues before long.

Have 'only windows' on the SSD tosses out 1/2 the usability of having the SSD.

Buy a bigger SSD.
1TB SATA III SSD is relatively inexpensive.

Seriously consider a solid state drive of some sort. Either alone, or in addition to a spinning drive.
It will make a world of difference.
