You are in luck. This little tool allows you to move Steam games back and forth to your SSD and back, depending on which game you are currently playing. Very easy to use and extremely useful in your case.

So what I still don't understand is what truly offers the most performance: SSD caching or SSD boot drive. From what I know now (correct me if I am wrong please) is that SSD boot drive will simply speed up your OS functions limited to Windows 7, but SSD caching will improve your overall speed? I am not truly sure and I am planning on a build with a 1 TB HDD and a 64 GB SSD. What would you say to do for the most responsiveness, performance, and speed from my computer?
