So I am wondering if it is possible to use 1 Solid State Drive for just the Windows Operating System and another 7200 RPM hard drive for programs like Microsoft Office, Steam, or even Firefox. Basically any application and document. Like make the 7200RPM hard drive the "Program Files" while the SSD just houses the core Windows OS.

I know, it sounds complicated, but this is a mystery to me. If I have to, I will just go with the "custom Install" option when installing programs to save them there.
