I have Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bits and only 1 hard drive in my current rig.So the question would be what will be better solution?
1.Install Windows on separate 50GB partition and data on the rest 250GB
2.Install windows on a full 320gb partition and store all data and programs on that 1 partition
???????????????????????????????
if interested the rest of the system is:
MSI 785GM-E51
AMD Phenom II 550 Black Edition 3.5GHz
Kingston HyperX 2GB DDR3 1600MHz
Palit GTS 450 512mb GDDR5
Hitachi SATA II 320GB 16mb cache
I want to have and option that will give me faster booting and lower disk activity while browsing and idling...
PLS ANSWER FAST OR AT LEAST GIVE YOUR OPINION IF NOT SURE!!!!!

Every partition is 10 percent slower than the partition before it. If you want to use it as storage its a good idea but if you want to install your programs on it its not such a good idea

Didnt really answer my question what should i go for,what will give me better performance, OS on separate partition or same as my data because its only single 320gb disk that i have...
