Lightroom catalogs and previews on an SSD ?

I have a Windows gaming system that I use for photo and video editing. I just put a 250GB SSD in it that I intend to use as a cache to speed up video editing. I'll have room left over and was wondering about how to speed up Lightroom. Since the preview directory always goes where ever the catalog is I was thinking about moving my catalogs to the SSD drive.

The SSD is not drive C:. I have almost 60,000 photos collected over 16 years. Due to this size of my directories of photos and videos it is impractical to move them to the SSD.

Anything wrong with this idea? Is there a better way to speed up Lightroom?
