I know I'd put my OS on it, but as for games, I don't know if I ever would. I cycle through games pretty quickly (if I get obsessed with one, I'll play it for 3 months, burn myself out, and not touch it for a year). So I'm afraid I'll either wear it out by replacing games every 3 months, or I'll have a SSD that I'm not using to its full potential.

Wat do?

What I like to do is put my OS and games on my 2TB 5400RPM HDD because of all the storage and they take the most space while I keep my pictures, gifs, mp3s, txtdocs and such on my 32GB SSD so I can have ultra lightning fast files and such while conserving money and space.

And another Harddrive for your games.

Solid state drives are rated to last several years performing an average of 10GB writes a day. Replacing even a 20GB game once a month wouldn't significantly affect your SSD's life.
