No, that works fine. When you install stuff just make sure you do "custom" because some installers only give you the option of choosing where to install in the "custom" menus.

Steam has an option to add a new library location, so you can install games wherever you want.

I also highly advise you to make a 200-300GB partition on that 1TB HDD for programs so that they are installed in the fastest spots. Then make a 700-800GB "Media" partition. Don't forget to move your Docs/Pics/Vids/Music libraries to the Media partition.

Also... you put this in the "Graphics" section :p

1. Wrong thread to post this in...
2. There is no restriction. I have the same setup on my PC and I just make sure during any installation I change the default directory from C: to E: (Which is my drive letters.) and let it still install to E:\Program Files (x86)\.... There is no problem..
