Samsung 840 Pro
I have the 830, which is great! I run some of my games off it now, and use a Asus RAIDR PCIe based SSD.... Don't know if it is worth the money difference, but it DOES boot a LITTLE faster them my 830 did. Probably shaved a few seconds off boot.

will it still open my programs i install on the hdd faster or do it need to be installed on the ssd



you would need to install programs to the ssd to make them load faster.



would it be better to have a Samsung 840 EVO 250 gb for win 7 and one Samsung 840 EVO 500 gb for games and programs insted of the hdd. or will it work just as good whit one 500 gb in 2 partitions.

i have a 3 tb hdd for video and other storge

I would just load the intensive applications on an ssd. You could get a ssd/hdd hybrid so that you have ssd like speeds but the price and storage of a traditional hdd.

I would put the os on an actual ssd. Probably 240gb and everything else on a hybrid. the hybrid will be able to be accessed at ssd speeds but it will be alot cheaper to store games and what not.

yeah but i just wanna know if it is not slowing it down by have it in 2 partitions so there is not gonna get too much junk on the os partition like a normal hdd vs on 1 ssd, whit all of it on the same partition.

OOOOOHHH I see lol! Partitioning the SSD with windows on one half and games and stuff on the other half should be fine. You arnt going to see a huge difference with two ssd. That way you have room to expand as well later.
