Corsair Neutron GTX or Corsair Force GS. Either are insanely fast. Both are in your price range. The new LAMB controller in the neutron GTX is a beast, but the firmware is still rough around the edges. In the long term its the best. Force GS uses a controller with mature firmware. Update it to 5.03 and you probably will never HAVE to update the firmware again. It too is a beast...just not as fast. But it is cheaper by about 50 bucks.

Cant go wrong with either.

As for your question...install the OS to the SSD...and install the programs to the HDD (ie do a custom install and 'point' the installed to the 'd' drive).
