All system, application files and working data lives into SSD

I think your better way to use the SSD from your computer will depend the way you will use it.

I am very glad with my way to use the storage in my workstation with one fast Intel 520 series 240GB SSD and one 3TB Hitachi Enterprise HD. Both with fast 6Mb/s interface and using plenty of my fast main memory as buffer/cache (I have 32GB four-channel RAM).

All system and application files lives into SSD.

I created four users each one for some specific task. The two main are the Administrator and my PhotoUser. All libraries and temporary files from Administrator run on SSD. PhotoUser has all its temporary files also running on SSD except the temporary files for Internet, Download area and Desktop (my temporary work space).

I maintain my working data all on SSD. After its use, I organize them in volumes and move them to my back storage constructed into my 3TB HD, there lives all my originals and worked photo files plus full backup of applications, mail, books, music and so on. I use more than 1TB in my back storage.

Perhaps you can create a similar scheme.
