SDD boot/HDD games

  1. Hello folks

    I'm pretty new to the whole SSD world like most are so I'm not quite sure what I got myself into.

    I have a 64mg Crucial SSD that I'm using my primary boot up drive. So all my windows 7 64bit stuff is installed there.

    I also have a standard Samsung 750 gig HDD that I formatted and would like to use for gaming and music.

    I guess I should give you the lay out of my setup.

    WIN 7 64 bit
    INTEL I-7 950
    ASUS SABERTOOTH X58 MOBO
    12 GIGS GSKILL RIPJAWS
    ASUS GEFORCE 550I VIDEO CARD

    And of course the SSD/and HDD. I have my SSD pluged in to my SATA3 port on AHCI and I have my HDD pluged into my SATA 2 port since its only a 3gb/s drive.

    With all this being said; can I easily play games from my HDD? or do I have to do some configuring of some kind?

    Thank you much!

    no your good just install the OS on the SSD and make sure when you install your games, install them your HDD and not your SSD
