Your hard drive is not going to saturate a SATA 2 bus...hell it will have a tough time saturating SATA 1! SATA 6gb/s for hdds is marketing gimmick only right now (IMHO "bust speed" is a BS benchmark for hdds). ONLY SSD's needs SATA 6gb/s. Most of my rigs OS drive run at about 40-50GB of space requirement. Stick anything you NEED to be fast (aka time sensitive data, apps, etc) on the SSD and stick everything else on the HDD.
