Move temporary folders to HDD from SSD?

Running 64bit Windows 7.

I recently got an SSD for OS and some application loading. I am wondering what folders I should move from the SSD to the HDD, to reduce wear on the SSD. I am moving things like Documents and such, but I am really curious about temporary files and folders. Some of them are probably not accessed much, making them good candidates to keep on the HDD, and some of them are changed and read frequently, which you would want to keep on the SSD.

Does anyone have suggestions on file and folder locations after installation of Windows?

Read through the site below. It gives a pretty good breakdown on what to do on a SSD after an install..

Thanks. I read through a few of those and I followed the SSD tweaks guide. Very useful.

However, I didn't see anything about moving or redirecting Program Files and temporary files/folders. Are optimizing those not that big of a deal?
