I estimate what my operating system and core programs will need and then add about 10 gigs to that and make it my system partition, and put the rest in a data partition. The system partition gets regular maintenance, cleaned up and defragged every few weeks, only takes a few minutes for defrag and I am not thrashing the hard drive to death defragging data. If windows ever crashes hard, my data is safe and I reinstall. If you had larger game images they could go with the data. Leaving 10 gigs allows room for dvd video work, temp files etc.
This is really a no-brainer, the argument for a single large partition has no real advantages.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
