So I have built my first rig:

Now, I will be using this PC regularly for gaming mostly in addition to other applications.

I have installed windows 7 and updated drivers, etc. onto the ssd and I have about 200GB of free space. I am about to transfer my thousands of songs library onto the mechanical drive. My question is, what should I save on the SSD (besides steam and games obvisously) and what should I save on the mechanical? I'm guessing everything else can go on the WD but I just wanted to double check.

Thanks in advance

Your SSD is a 240GB. Put ALL your applications on it, whatever you use. And whatever games fit.
Keep it under ~200GB used space, but that should be no problem.

The HDD can hold all your other media. Music, video, backups, etc, etc.
