Default XP install for gaming

Hello. This is my first time posting here but I have been browsing the forums for a while.
Well I just built my new rig (in sig) and now I am going to install windows. Well this box is going to be mostly for gaming and apps, and I was wondering what would be the best way to partition my one hard drive (going to pick up another one a little later on) for gaming?
I have another older box that will be for downloading and storing mp3's and such.

swap file first


I'm not sure windows allows this so swap file right after window system files.
