Hey guys I'm looking into buying an SSD for my system to use as a Win7 and boot up drive. My current 500Gb HDD will be hooked up as a storage drive.

Here's my question, should I get a larger SSD and install my main games on the SSD or the HDD?

If you install games on SSD they will all launch super fast :)

A good plan.
a 120gb ssd will hold the os and a handful of games.
With 240gb, you can hold a large number of games. I would install everything I could on the ssd, and use the hard drive for storage of large files such as video's and backups.
The key to good performance on any ssd is to not overfill it. Do not plan to use it over 80% full.

I was planning on installing my three main games on the SSD and secondary casual games on the HDD

That is reasonable.

But, SSD prices have declined. My inclination would be to buy larger than I need up front.
240gb would be good if budget permits.
Look at Samsung EVO.
