Question Hard Drive Choice ?????

Hello

I am adding a second hard drive to my system. However I am having trouble deciding which drive to use as storage, ad which one to install my OS on. I have two seagates to choose from, a seagate SATA II 320GB and a 500GB. I was thinking that it would be best to install my OS on the smaller drive, But I was considering that since the 500GB has 32Mb cache vx the 16Mb that is on the 320Gb.

Install the O/S on the faster drive.
