If you got a virus say onto E: then that could spread to C:. However, if some of the apps became corrupted on E: then that wouldn't affect your business apps on C:. It depends on what kind of resilience you need here. If you ran regular backups of your important info then this shouldn't be a problem.

The gaming performance would be just about the same on E: as it would be if that single drive was C:. However, as Enterprise said, Raid0 would be a little faster, mainly due to the fact that you would be increasing the capacity of the drive.

Yes, you'd just need to switch the boot order around in the bios to determine which HDD you used. Legally, I think you'd probably need 2 OS here, not 100% sure though.

you could also buy an external case for a hd, and just plug it in when you need, is that what you are looking for?

Here's what I did a while back when I was strapped for space, I had an 80GB hard drive as my C: drive and had Windows XP and all of my games on that hard drive and then I had a 200GB drive which was my D: drive and on that I had all of my music and movies etc. When you turn on the computer you boot off of the C drive with Windows on it and if you want to access the D drive all you do is double click My Computer and in there it shows both the C and D drives and you just click which ever one you need. In order to set this up simply hook both drives up to the computer normally and then just install Windows onto the C drive, alternatively if you already have Windows on your C drive just add in another drive and it will be named D or E or whatever and will function as described above automatically. This wil not hurt performance at all over a single drive configuration, the only reason why I dont do this anymore is I got a 300GB for Windows and use my 200GB for Linux.
