Let me ask this, if I bought one of the smaller ssd to just put the OS on and a few other things could I put all other programs on another drive to keep me from having to re install programs when its time to do a fresh install? Or no it doesn't work like that?
Use a ghost to clone when you upgrade.
There was a prototype year or so ago which just plain ran fast but you're still inherently going to be limited by the 6.0 sata 3 cap. I recently moved my pagefile off to a 6.0 1T seagate and it improved a fair bit. But you're not gonna get enough individual improvement on a system simply by installing a 40gb SSD to warrant doing it first, especially not if the 6.0 slot is a 3.0 running a compatibility scheme. Board and Ram come first.
This is called the "intel lesson"... the primary reason AMD has lagged behind intel isn't core power, it is memory handling and lower memory speeds.
MB and DDR upgrades.
