i have built a rig with an intel i7 4770k, corsair vengeance 1866mhz 32gb ram (8gb*4), msi z87-gd65 gaming, kingston hyper x 3k 120gb ssd, asus radeon 7870. i am wondering how to turn off the 16gb ram limit on windows home premium which will allow me to use the full 32gb and if so is it worth it. How to make my ssd my boot drive only.

You would need to upgrade to a 'higher' version of windows for the 32 gb, it is not an off/on feature.

You would need to reinstall the o/s onto the ssd and then reinstall the applications.
Ensure that AHCI is turned-on in the bios instead of IDE. Windows 7 and Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 Update.

If you get Windows 8.X, see if you options in your bios for Windows 8 Features/options and ensure that Secure Boot and full UEFI bios is selected. Then install Windows 8.X from an option at boot that says something like UEFI: DVD drive.
