Yes,typically you would want atleast 64 GB for the OS and programs.Everything else goes on the WD(storage) drive.The Crucial C300 is very good-but the SandForce controller drives are better in some areas and the Samsung 470 is a good performer also.

Yep, I also installed heavy read games like WoW on my SSD, then I got spoiled so I moved all my steam games over as well. I basically have all of my programs on my two SSD's and my media on my standard drives.

Microsoft office and even photoshop open in ~.5 secs. Office will open as you release the mouse button.
I hope you're not exaggerating, cuz that's ******* awesome.

I'm not it's pretty amazing. On Christmas I was showing my family the difference in opening a WoW window from the SSD and one from my backup drive. I would be logged in on the SSD one with everything instantly populated before the standard one would be 70% done loading and then you would have to wait an additional 25-40 secs for all the characters to "pop up".

Unbelievable! So it must be worth it...I have heard speculation on the longevity of SSDs and how they may fail quicker than mechanical? Is this true?

Worth it, that depends? I totally think it is worth it, but it is outrageously more expensive $/GB than mechanical drives.

I think that the issue has been blown out of proportion, with TRIM support in Win 7 and the modern controllers, the life span has been greatly increased. I think they will last at least until you want to replace it.
