Im Looking to build a nice gaming computer/Entertainment (DVD/TV) Computer. And i've read alot about the SSD drives but im wondering if my setup would prove to be a waste of money to put the Win7 UltimateX64 On the SSD And all the programs on a Sata Drive. Would the speed increase of the os be worth the extra money on the ssd? or should I wait for the prices to drop. Or is the speed increase just not worth it? Thanks.

depends on how much money you make, and how much you have to spend on toys

If you can I would put the OS and all Programs on the SSD and all files on a HDD.

well money wont really be an option, i just want to make sure that is the best way to do it, I mean i dont have ALOT of money, but im gunna be throwing 1200 at this rig and im only getting a 64Gb SSD so I cant really fit Everything on the SSD. Is there a better way to do it? And when I do it is there a way to lock the SSD so no trash files find there way onto it?

ssd for os and programs with another drive for all data is a great way to go, and 64gig will hold quite a few apps

just run ccleaner periodically to get rid of junk files, and set your my docs folder to go straight to the mechanical hdd
