Install AMD Catalyst on SSD (win 7 OS) or HDD

Hi all,
I was wondering if there was a performance difference between installing the AMD Catalyst software on the HDD (no OS, just storage and programs) or moving it to the SSD where the Win7 OS is.

    You can install the Catalyst on the HDD so as to not fill up your SSD and once the drivers are loaded when windows starts they are not needed to be constantly accessed. With a 90gb SSD you do have to pat attention to what you load ointo the drive , so I would put as much as possible on the HDD.
