What size is your ssd? And most likely yes you should, ssd have a certain amount of data that can be used with it , like after you write 10000gb too it the ssd will be use less

the 10000gb is not actual number that can be used with it.

I ordered the Evo and I plan to use it only for the Windows 8.1 OS install. Which I also bought. Then I have my 1TB WD for Steam. Although I may test some disk games like The Sims 3 on the SSD. If I'm impressed. I may just get another of larger size.

with a 250gb ssd, you should be able to easily install every program you use to it with room to spare. obviously your music, videos, documents, etc go on a separate drive.

This is how I have mine set up, and even with 4 games installed at the same time, I still have like 100gb free.

Fantastic. I don't play many games at a time and I recall seeing some way to move them between drives.

I recall seeing some way to move them between drives.

You're probably thinking of SteamMover:

Or, there's the manual symlink way (which I use, just for more granular control), but SteamMover seems great if you're not great at navigating around with a command-prompt window.

That's the name. I also heard of an mklink (I think that's the name) deal but I can't recall if that was just shortcuts to the other hard drive or actually moving stuff.

This adds a symlink option to the right click, very helpful for many things.
