Default Hard Disc space help.

Well Guys I received my Seagate Barracuda back from RMA. I want to Install Windows on it tell me if my Partitioning is good in terms of speed / data transfer since I know nothing about it.

Hard Disks :

Seagate 80GB = 30GB Windows / Drivers / Software
50GB Games

Western Digital 250GB = Downloads and Crap.

Should I partition the Western/Seagate differently in order to receive better performance?

Thanks,
Preacher

I'd put a 5 gig partition in front of that 250 hdd and make the rest my documents folder
