I have a Intel 60GB 330 Series MLC 2.5" 25nm SATA 6GB/s 9.5mm SSD and a Western Digital 1TB Blue SATA 6GB/s 7200RPM 64MB 3.5" Hard Drive

Should I
A: Use the SSD as a Boot Disk with things like office, photoshop on then put my games on the HDD
B: Use 30gig of the SSD as boot the other 30gig as Cache.
C: Use the entire SSD as a Cache and install everything on the HDD

I am using a Asus P8Z77-V LX motherboard with an I5-3570k Processor 16gig of 1600MHZ DDR3

Yep, go with A. Caching is nice if you're working with something like photoshop, but if you change programs frequently, it doesn't help.

I think that you might want to try using something like 4-8GB of the SSD as cache if you can afford that much capacity. A little bit might help some things that you use frequently.

HELO Go with C. Never trust your files to a SSD Always use SLC SSD. :sol:
