optimal partition win 7 pro

Originally I was planning to install OS +Programs in one partition and personal data in the second . I am now wondering whether it make any sense at all to install the OS in one partition , programs in second and personal data in a third ? Will this slow down the computer or make the disk work harder ? tks

Programs should be on same partition for several reasons.

Data can safely (and wisely) be placed on a separate partition.
