Windows 7: Is it possible to install software on a second hard drive?

The games are really the only thing I plan to install on SSD. Any other app can be installed on blank HDD. All files such as docs, movies, music, etc can be stored on an external HDD.

I install OS and apps I use regularly on the SSD. All user folders and games get installed on a spinner. It has given me no problems. The only issue you will have with games is like paulpicks said. They will take longer to load but no issues in performance.

Software that reports hard drive age?
Anyone know of an app that reports the age (manufacture date) of hard drives? Note: I don't mean 'Power-On Time': Speccy and Crystal Disk Info will do that. I know the age data is on the HDD case, but I don't want to open the computer box to examine the drives.
