making the SSD the C: drive is whats stupid. Put slow-loading games on there, you really want a million versions of .NET filling up your ultra fast ultra expensive SSD?

That's poor, uninformed advice that has no basis in reality. Games aren't optimized for SSDs, they are optimized for streaming data from DVDs and Blurays. They are also largely CPU/GPU bottlenecked, very rarely will an SSD show a large improvement in load times because frequently the CPU is unpacking container formats and handling other tasks. There are very few games which will show a marked improvement from being on SSD, mostly just MMO games that go crazy with needing huge amounts of texture memory filled from disk constantly.

The operating system has several IO bottlenecks that an SSD makes an incredible improvement for, particularly at the application layer. It makes perfect sense to have your operating system on the SSD, its where you will see the most benefit.
