    I would like to use a RAMDisk to reduce the write cycles to the SSD and also have adobe not put so much on it as well....

    what RAMDisk software is the best for this.... ?

    or is this even that much of an issue anymore.

    I got 16GB Corsiar XMS 3 DDR3 1600 RAM

    I have a Samsung 840 128GB SSD (for now then I will upgrade to the pro 256GB or even higher when I have more cash)

    I use Google Chrome and I typically have 10 tabs loaded. I also use J-River Media Jukebox but it's setup to play files from mem instead of disk.

    I have found using a cheap usb 3.0 drive works great as for all kinds of temp files. Might be worth considering.

    Why would you have SSD and shitloads of RAM and then transfer data through slow USB 3.0 !? Use the RAM which has by far the highest bandwidth and lowest latencies of them all. Only downside is that it's volatile and if server goes down, the data will be lost. You can enable periodic cache saving so you might lose only a fraction of data but it won't be constatntly doing tiny writes to the SSD's, it will make one larger write here and there, depending on backup interval...
