put the OS on the Solid State Drive SSD

Don't put the OS on two hard drives. I can tell you how to put games on your HDD. Create a folder in your HDD and name it Program Files 2 so you do not get it mixed up with the Operating System Program Files (86x) or Program Files in the OS SSD Hard Drive. Then in Program Files 2 make a folder named Gaming. Then in the Gaming folder make anther folder and name that the game. Now in the installation of the game, select the custom installation, then there should be an option of where you want to put the game in. Then it should install in that folder.

Well, it seems that you got something wrong PJG. If you wanted to suggest these kinda rigs you can always see forward to the main page of Tomshardware. There you'll get all updates. The question you posted is an answer.

And ofcourse a $2000 AMD Gaming rig is Extreme.

Okay pjc I'm sry for this kinda reply. Now I tell you, everything is rock solid on this PC you want to build. Just one suggestion - You can get an ASUS VG278H in a price increase but Nvidia 3D Vision 2 in it included. And if any queries, I'm more of into Nvidia and Intel than AMD so..... Nothing more I can suggest!
