OK... so Im preparing to move to SSD. I have moved all my docs, pics, vids, etc to secondary drives. I can still move more stuff off the boot drive as well.

My question (poll) is what do all of you keep on your SSD's? How much free space should be kept, if any, on a SSD? Do you have games on it? MS Office? What?

On the laptops I have everything (minus the hiberfile). On the desktops I move the userfiles to the HDD. I have no games. My largest SSD is 90GB (on a laptop). The others are 2x80 and 2x60GB. None are more than 50% full.

I answered "Windows, apps, and all my games", as it was part of the only choice that matched, I too have no games :)

I picked 'Windows, apps, and all my games' though I don't have any games, I put all apps on my SSD.
Pics, videos, music, not installed software, on the HDD.

I have seen it mentioned that games are noticeably faster.

Why a pair rather than one bigger one - I hope you are not planning to Raid them.

No, but I want to keep some apps and games in a separate one.

I chose "Windows, apps & games" but I do have some documents and stuff on my SSD too. But not EVERYTHING (that would be my 500GB and 1TB drive on a 90GB SSD... not possible :p)
