Just ordered the components for a new build. I included a 120GB Samsung SSD. Besides the OS (Windows 8/OEM/Clean Install), what should I load onto the SSD? Maybe PhotoShop CS5 and Lightroom (with the scratch file elsewhere), Topaz FX and all the plugins, Microsoft Office etc until I run out of room?  Are there any programs that do better on an SSD or any that should not be loaded?

* Operating system including swap and TEMP.

* Most applications including their associated scratch/cache files.

* Lightroom catalog.

What I don't put on the SSD is:

* Data files, photos, video, music etc.

* Large but very infrequently used applications. e.g. several GBytes of infrequently used GPS map data.
