Hello forum i have a question. I have a kingston 30 gb ssd i use as my windows drive, and a 750 gb wd hdd for data/game storage. I have heard that you can ghost a file on the data drive into the x86 folder so that all new installs go there and then you still recieve most of the benefits of your ssd w/o clogging it up. I have an amd based system (dont know if that matters or not)

That's not possible. A program's installer determines where it will be installed at. If the installer doesn't give you a choice as where to install, it will most likely end up under c:\program files.

You might be able to get away with it if you made c:\program files a junction to a folder on another drive. (mlink works in win 7 too).
