I remember before the time of SSD's, it was beneficial to install your OS on a drive, and install all your programs on a separate drive. This is scenario #3, as well as scenario #5.
In scenario 3, OS load would go on the mSATA, and most of the program load would come from the SSD. The idea here is for 2 SSD's to work together, through distribution of workload.
In scenario 5, all load would go on the SSD, with the mSATA to assist. The idea is again for 2 SSD's to work together, with one drive assisting the other.
That being said, I'm not up to date on tech, and wonder if these scenarios would work the way I imagine, and which scenario would be better.

I would go with a modified version 5. Put your page file and stuff like that on the msata drive if you decide to use it.

I would do #4.
Not sure you can even do #1...can you? Isn't mSATA only for caching with another drive?

32GB seems too small to be useful.
A basic Win7 install is ~22GB, and a 32GB drive will only yield about 29GB of usable space.
In my opinion, there is little to no need for a SSD in a gaming console.

SSD / mSata Boot Up - Advice Needed!
I just bought the 120gb Kingston SSD from Staples. Installed it in my PS3, and while it does seem faster, I'm wondering if I would see more bang for my buck by installing it in my desktop.
Desktop: 32gb mSATA, 1tb 7200rpm
Option: 120gb SSD
I have a few scenarios, please tell me which is the best
1) Install OS on mSATA, install programs as they fit on mSATA, and install programs >32gb on 1tb. Storage on 1tb.
2) Install OS on 1TB. Use mSATA for caching. =>This I do not understand how to set up.
3) Install OS on mSATA. Install SSD, and install programs on SSD. Use 1tb for storage.
4) Install OS on SSD. Install programs on SSD. Use 1tb for storage. mSATA not in use.
5) Install OS on SSD. Install programs on SSD. Use 1tb for storage. Use mSATA for caching. => Is this possible and/or beneficial?
Basically, my question is since the desktop has an mSATA, will I benefit from the SSD? Or would the difference be small enough that I might as well keep the SSD inside the PS3?
