Hello everyone, I have just bought a used Kingston SSDnow V100 64GB SSD drive and would like to use it for windows 7 and a few applications that should take no more than 30GB. My question is what would be the best scenario for me with my current configuration, any help would be appreciated. Thank you

My current PC configuration:

-ASUS M2N32 SLi Delux WiFi motherboard (never updated BIOS, but never seemed to have any problems either..)
-AMD 5600+ CPU
-Patriot 4GB DDR2 RAM
-SB Audigy 2 Platinum
-WD Raptor X 150GB HD
-ASUS Nvidia GTX260
-Kingston 64GB SSDnow V100 (firmware was never updated to my knowledge, but I will update to Firmware Rev. 111130)

Before anyone says anything this system is 6 years old and is more then enough power for me, I would like to use the SSD to load windows and my Raptor to store my data ideally. Any suggestions or cautions if I will have a bumpy road configuring with my current configuration.

Install the OS without the raptor attached.
