Which programs to put on SSD ??
 
Really not sure on this one.

Apart from the OS and game, which other program should/must be on the SSD ???

none have to be but i put all my apps installed to my ssd/os/boot that's just me, games take up the most so.:thumb:

I generally put any programs that are resource intensive on my SSD; Corel Draw, Movie Maker, Rhino, etc.

Things like MS Office, webbrowsers, etc don't tax a WD black's transfer rate so no sense in putting them on the SSD.
Games definitely go on the SSD though :D

Whatever you use the most should go on the SSD.
IF the system is more for games then office, then yup Office, wordperfect, openoffice, etc go on the HDD IF the SSD cant fit both on them.
IF the system is more for "work" then play...the opposite holds true.
Fill it to 80-85% capacity with the things you NEED and if there is room leftover (still leaving 15% or so free for wearleveling) then go to the "wants" and then if still room...the "nice to haves" ;)

I usually have one game installed on my SSD (whatever Im really playing the most) and the rest is for work. Word 2k3, O2k7, 02k10 64bit, photoshop CS3, Dreavweaver CS4, FF, Thunderbird, etc etc etc
