It's really easy, I'm yet to actually get my SSD (And if I get it any time soon it won't be the Crucial M4, more likely an Intel 320 due to price without sacrificing reliability) but I've already got everything ready for when I do...C:\ drive is the SSD, and has Windows, Program Files, Program Files (x86), Program Data and a symlink to the Users folder which will be on my 1TB Spinpoint F3, my games will be on my 500GB Spinpoint F1 apart from Skyrim and The Sims 3, both of which benefit heavily from an SSD. (Skyrim does with all the texture mods I've put in, anyway. It lags to hell whenever I turn around because my HDD is pegged) For the hell of it, I'll add BF3. (Better load times, why not?)
All in all, I'll use roughly 87.2GB of SSD space, fairly efficiently. Easily fitted into the 128GB SSD for AU$189 (Cheaper than a HD7770!) I'll buy.
