Putting your C:\ drive on any SSD will make your machine a lot quicker. I have no tolerance for machines that make me wait, but app load times are quick enough on a single SSD that I don't even notice. I don't think even halving the load times would be good bang-for-buck - they're quick enough already.

Also, my 120GB C:\ drive still has 40GB free even after a couple of years - why do you want 480GB? Continuous writes will degrade SSDs, so you want it to be mostly read-only. So you need to move your pagefile and hibernate file somewhere else, which is a big chunk of most C:\ drives.

I just mirrored my C:\ drive and thinking about it, not having to spend a week reinstalling everything if the old disk goes kaput is worth more than half a second off the VS load time.

Hope this helps,
Nick
