Well you don't really use any commands, you just redirect say the pictures folder by rightclicking it > properties, go to the location tab and set it to a folder on the HDD.

How different is that from what I'm doing now. Just uninstalling the stuff i don't want and reinstalling when i need it here and there from a backup drive?
What? You can do what ever you like with the drives. Once the OS is installed.

Here is my guide btw: http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-optimization-guide-for-ssds-hdds

Right I see, I guess for now I'll just stay with my Intel Drive. Because It's really not a big deal to move a game to the SSD From a local backup. Steam mover will make what I'm already doing easier. Thanks for all the input on this, I might just grab that Crucial SSD,looks boss. Oh I had one more question for anyone who knows it. I have never messed around with RAID that much in the past, But I don't suppose I could Do like a RAID 0 With 2 of those Crucial SSD's could I ? Have like 240gb's and raised memory transfer rates. I only ask because someone told me you could RAID like 48 SSD Drives if the hardware permitted it.

You could RAID 0 as many drives as you like as long as the controller was sufficient enough to do so lol.

I would recommend just getting a single SSD over 2 smaller and setting up a array. You won't notice the speed difference b/w a single drive and a RAID 0 array with SSDs anyways.

"As many drives as you wanted to".. lol when I saw that I immediately thought of like hundred's of SSD drives in a huge case with like a 400gb/s Transfer rate. I figured that Two SSD drives in RAID 0 would be significantly greater but your right, At speeds like these it would be unnoticeable in general use.

Again thanks for all the input you guys are the best.
