Using 74GB SSD for Ready boost Efficient?

I have an 80GB of course 74GB after formatted to NTFS.

I have too much crap on my system to use it as my primary drive.
I don't feel like fighting for disk space at the end.

I was thinking of using the SSD drive for ReadyBoost and VM's.

Anyone have any better ideas or is this one okay?

I am using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.

Sounds like a waste of an SSD to me.

If nothing else, install Windows on the SSD. Ideally, Windows and your most often used apps.

Windows takes up no more than 20 GB by itself.

I honestly would like to Install CENTOS on my SSD as my primary OS but having an ATI video card makes it a pain in the butt to install Linux because of the blank screen at the beginning of setup.

I think that I might add the SSD in and then maybe for all my secondary programs to my 2nd hard drive.. Like Music, videos..
