    Question Installing OS on SSD, is that all it's for?

    I purchased a TB HD for my computer along with a 128GB-SSD for the OS..

    However, with the OS HARDLY taking up all of that 128GB, what else do people use that for instead of the HD? Do you install games and primary software on the SSD? DO i just leave it to have tons of room to breathe?


    Whatcha think?

    I don't put any games on my SSD because there's no point, I have all my core programmes on their (MS Office, Benchmarking software, Drivers etc).

    It's only half full but I like to leave space on there just in case I have to install games in there like FC3 Blood Dragon because Uplay hasn't always let you change the install destination.

    The only games that will benefit really are ones with lot's of loading screens to deal with. Otherwise as Ork say's, your most used programs can be more efficient.

    I install photoshop, vim, sublime text, and other commonly used programs on one. On another SSD, I just have Arch Linux installed.
