I'm about to load all my programs on my new build, Asrock P67 pro motherboard. Intel Ivy Bridge i5 3330 + 32Gb ram. The question is should I use my 240Gb SSD as a scratch disk and load all my programs on my Sata 3 500Gb Hard drive or vice versa.
At present on my old machine I'm using the SSD as the 'C' drive, but have read conflicting reports regarding the use of the SSD as a scratch disk when using photoshop/Lightroom. Would appreciate your thoughts.

After reading all your replies and spending all evening searching the web on the subject, I've decided to load programs onto the Sata 3 500Gb. The 240 SSD will be a dedicated scratch disk along with a smaller 90Gb SSD.
I have a couple of spare Sata drives which I will install, one for Photos and use the other for miscellaneous files. Obviously all my many thousands of Raw & Tiff files will be backed up to external drives.
Thanks for all your input.
John I'm sure you'll just love CS6 it's a great program, but with one major drawback. all the latest upgrades to CS6 are only available to users of Adobe Creative Cloud on monthly subscription.
