can you elaborate on that some more? I have already begun deleting games because i can just re-download them. I will prob only put 1 or 2 games on my ssd since i use it the most. Why would i not be able to re-install on the hdd?

Download piriform speccy

It will give you your windows key. IF its a prebuilt just run system restore with the SSD being the only attached drive

What I meant was that if your HDD as 200GB of data on it and you delete 80GB to fit on a 120GB EVO then you will not be able to add anything else to the SSD once you clone your cleaned-out HDD onto your SSD.

How big is your EVO? IIRC 120GB is the smallest EVO and so you should be able to easily fit your OS and quite a few games on it. Some people believe otherwise but if you can also connect your HDD to your motherboard, you can use it as a storage drive for all your media as well as any other applications you install. IMO, the only other types of applications I would install on an SSD when you have limited space are editing applications such as Photoshop or Premiere, but if you're not using those or other applications that rely on speedy data transfers then you can install just your games and OS to the EVO and everything else on your HDD.

okay got it all working need new help now.

Installed Dota2 on my ssd. and when i go to run it the game runs but wont show up. when i click on the icon it launches but remains black then minimizes. You can hear the music from it and the Task manager says that it is running fine.
where as I have another game installed back on the HDD and it runs and shows up fine.

I tried to uninstall the game and re install it, and the same thing occurs.

Any ideas?
