I would set the m4 as OS drive alongside with main programs, they will fit there nicely. The other drive for games.

Anyone else have any ideas? If not I will probably go with that.

The 256 drive will probably be faster...I would house there OS and games, leaving the 128 drive as "secondary" for a few more games if the 256 starts getting more than 60-70% full.

The OS would be perfectly fine on the Crucial m4 128GB. It's not like the Corsair Neutron will benefit the OS much. Besides, going for tiered storage might actually help here so I second Karlz3r's suggestion of 128GB for OS+apps and 256GB for games. It's also cleaner that way.
