Default My first SSD: Smart cache or system disk?

Hello all! I just received hardware for my system and I need your help to decide what to do with my first SSD disk ever.

Its this one: Crucial M4 SSD Micron C400 64GB 2.5IN Solid State Disk Flash Drive SATA3 6Gbps

Now, my Z68 motherboard has "smart response" which allows it to use a SSD drive to speed up the most used files on my computer.

Worth mentioning I use 4 disks total, totalling about 6 terrabytes, but only the system data and my games are worth speeding up. I have a few hundred gigs of games so I cant put them all on the SSD, but I could put the OS there.

I assume putting the OS on the SSD would speed it up quite a bit. Oh the other hand, I assume the Smart system would speed up games more. Finally, I guess I could split it, 32 go for the cache and 32 go for the OS drive... would that even work?

What would you recommend? Anyone tried both?

Thanks for any info :)
