Suggest you change your hdd so it has 6gb/s rather than 3gb/s

i would suggest samsung spinpoint f3 1Tb or wd black 1 tb rather than the slower 'green' drive that you have. the 6 or 3 gbps won't make much if any difference.

mechanical drives cant even take advantage of the 3 Gbps. if you are going with an SSD, then it might make sense.

A popular set up is to have your OS on a Solid State Drive (I'd recommend 40GB or more) and use your HDD as storage or low profile applications such as Microsoft Office.
