Let's say I'm in the market for getting my storage figured out on my computers. What would be the ideal configuration for my devices? For example, should I just install my OS on the SSD and use the HDD as storage? Or would it be better if I used the SSD as cache instead? Perhaps a different configuration?

My Desktop has all my games and entertainment media. Specs as follows:
CPU: Intel i7-3770K
GPU: EVGA Geforce 760 OC Edition w| ACX Cooler in SLI with MSI Geforce 760 Afterburner OC Edition
PSU: ULTRA 750W 80+ Bronze
RAM: A pair of PATRIOT 4GB sticks = 8GB total
MOBO: MSI Z77A-G45
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro
What are the best storage configurations possible for these devices??
The HDD's cache is fine, usually people find 1TB/2TB HDD for data then 120-256GB SSD for OS and Games and a few important apps.
