Ok, i've built my rig, and it works but theres something that I want to change. I have a 100gig SSD that I boot with and a 2TB HDD that i want to use for the rest of my stuff, but the computer doesnt save anything to the 2TB drive unless I tell it to. I tryed to save a game on it but it wouldnt install right and wouldnt play. I was wondering if there was a way to just boot of the SSD? I'm using windows 7 64 ultimate.

Now that I think about it, most of the games I play don't have options allowing you to save to other drives or even other folders. I think you would need to install those games to the 2TB drive first. There may be a hack allowing you to alter the games so you can save them to the data drive.

is there a way to set up the hard drives so that theres no distinction between the two drives? or a way to run my programs off the 2TB drive only?

If you want to run the games off the 2TB drive, you must install them there first. Once games are loaded into memory, the SSD shouldn't be a major factor in their performance, unless the game has huge, giant maps then it will have to access the hard drive. I wonder if a game and an OS was 64-bit compatible and if the PC had, say, 30GB of RAM, if a game in its entirety could be loaded and ran exclusively from RAM? I've always been curious about that...
