Add another drive for the OS if you can. I learned the hard way many years ago about having everything one one drive. If the OS crashes then you lose everything! Having storage drives is a life saver. But be sure to make back ups to DVD’s every now and then to protect against those drives failing too.
In my new PC I’m only running a 60GB drive for my OS and programs. That should be more than enough for the Adobe Video Collection and maybe a few more programs. I have two 250GB SATA drives that will run independent of each other. One for capture, the other for final rendering.
