I was going to add this recommendation as well, once it was marked solved, but I'll add it now. SSDs aren't as brittle as once thought, so there's no harm in using them the way you'd use a normal drive. It's never made sense to see people buy an SSD and then try to use it as little as possible.
First of all, I'm CHEAP! I still use my FIRST HD over 1 Gig [it was a 12] as my boot drive for my server. I WILL get my $200 out of it!
I'm not trying to use it as little as possible. I'm trying to use it in a way that will allow me to show off the FAST machine. I'm trying to fill it with stuff that's more read that written. Not difficult for me, considering MOST of my data folders [Desktop, Docs, Pics, Music, etc]
Second of all, I'm stingy. I don't like buying things I already have. [See cheap]
Eventually, it will probably end up as my boot drive for my server, once it's ready to be retired from the living room PC, but I'm hoping this machine is fast enough to be used for a long time...
I think that 1% gain is worth it right now...
