2 x 60Gb ssd better than one 120Gb

I'm trying to decide if I should get 2 SSD (60Gb each) to run OS on one and programs (e.g. Adobe publishing) on the other; or 1 x 120Gb SSD and put both on that.
I would imagine the price will be slightly different, but will it be faster with two?

  1. Don't get the 2 60GB SSD's

    A 120+GB for OS and applications, and other large spinning drives for mass storage.
    Generally, larger driver are 'faster'.
  2. There will be a larger drive (HDD) for data as well.
    So here are the two options 3 drives - 2 small SSD and one HDD or 1 large SSD and one HDD.
    Just wondering if all will run faster if the OS and applications run on separate SSDs

    As USAFRet mentioned you would be better off to go with the 120GB SSD and one HDD. I run most of my applications off a single SSD which includes the Adobe Suite and the load times are great. I have not noticed a performance gain (the apps don't load any faster) for the few applications I have installed on a second SSD.
  4. Thanks. That certainly helps.
