SSD Caching?

SSD Caching?
I have recently found out about SSD caching,which is much newer than my current home build systems. I do have some questions about it.

I am getting a 500 GB hard drive for non photography files to partition into a Photoshop scratch disk and storage drive,

I thinking of using a Samsung 830 64GB as the SSD cache for the drive. Is the Samsung 830 64GB the best 64 GB SSD to use for this application? There are financial files and spreadsheets I access all the time, so the caching would help speed up access of those files. I would also love if it sped up the writing of Photoshop to the scratch disk too.

I can use it on maximum performance since I have a battery backup that allows me to properly shut down the computer meaning I should not lose anything.

I do plan on a 256 GB Plextor M3 SSD for my applications. Just looking for a way to speed up the Photoshop scratch disk and access to frequently used files from storage.

My larger 1 TB drive will not need SSD caching as it will only contain digital RAW files from photography along with associated TIFF files. It is unlikely for any one file to be accessed often on that drive.
