Your current setup if you had your programs on the SSD. Why do you have your programs on the HDD and not the SSD? Windows only takes up 7-15GB...

Programs on the SSD and games and personal files on teh HDD...

Yea pretty much. Install the OS onto the HDD in RAID mode, plug in the SSD (formatted as said b4), install the intel SATA drivers, setup the SRT caching to the SSD.

I use my ssd for core programs, my 600gb Vraptor for games and other programs, and I have another 1tb for storage.
