I have two hard drives:

Samsung T-Series
Hitachi k7400

The Samsung is particulary good at reading and writing data, and scores high at WorldBench performance. But it scores really low when it comes to playing games.
(Here's the tech report:
http://techreport.com/reviews/2006q3...t/index.x?pg=3)

Because it's very slow at loading up games, should I be installing them in the Hitachi?
(And would I be optimizing the speed of the Samsung if I install the OS in here? And programs such as Nero, Adobe...?)

Overall, should I be installing programs to match the hard drives' strengths and weaknesses?

Will this work?

Installing the games on the better drive is, of course, a good move. However no matter where you install it, try to keep the OS on a separate drive. This way when running your games you take better advantage of reading/writing on separate drives instead of queuing up on one. Also by chance if you hoop your OS, all of your precious saves are still intact on the other drive.

Thanks. I'll go ahead and put OS in Samsung and games in Hitachi then.
Oh, btw what do you mean by hooping OS?
