what would be the best way to split up the drives.
Bradey, don't you have a sata 0? Or are you saying you have 2 drives, one is sata 1 and the other is sata 2?
Oooooh, new icon, cool! Ok, I guess it depends on your motherboard but most have a connector for sata and it's position 0, then enumerated further. You don't say what brand or type of drive these are but if they both operate at sata speed 2 and are the same rpm speed and all then I would put the OS on the 200G and the games on the 350G and all things being equal (if they are) it doesn't matter where they're connected, except that your optical drive should be on the highest number.
By "split up the drives" I'm guessing you mean partitioning. I'd leave each drive as a single partition, especially if you're using Win Vista or Win7. Once you put the OS on the smaller drive, in the OS it automatically becomes drive 0 and the next should show up as drive 1.
If not, let us know and we'll help you further but please give us more info.
