Hey, i got 2 drive one is hdd 1tb and 2nd one is SSD 128GB
I want to make few parition to boost speed arch but i dont know what catalogs i should put on ssd and what i should put to hdd, could you give me some tips please ?
Put your ~/home/multimedia on the hdd and all the system stuff on the ssd.
Ye but still 128GB is small space for linux, i think to put some folders on SSD like /home/username to ssd + /mnt on ssd rest on hdd but i have no idea what should be on hdd and what should be on ssd

HUH?? My entire root + boot partitions are 5.1GB.
And why would you put /mnt/ on the ssd? /mnt/ doesn't actually use disk space (it shouldn't unless it's used incorrectly) it's a mount point for other disks.(edit: I see you meant / or the root directory.)

well i think to do like
sda - hdd
sdb - ssd
/dev/sdb3 /rest important stuff
Well if i will install much of sotwere i'm afraid my 128GB drive will not be much
My 5.1GB use is a lightweight system - but even users who install several full DEs wouldn't get much beyond 10-20GB. I suspect you might be able to install every package in the repos without hitting 128GB*.
I have no kde or qt programs currently, but I checked how much it would take to install the entire kde meta-package/group. To install the 236 packages and all their dependencies would only use 1.6BG after installation. And all of gnome would be 672 MB, some of which would likely overlap with what KDE would install. So a full install with all of KDE, all of gnome (and a full texlive installation that I already have ... along with the game 0ad, which is *huge*) would be under 7GB.
You can certainly do as you wish - and I'll leave you to it now. But I don't know why you'd ask for feedback or input if you are just going to ignore it all.
*I'm much more confident in this after my KDE/gnome checks.

I think that unless you're multibooting a couple OSen that SSD will be more that enough for everything, maybe except your multimedia stuff: music library, videos, collections of photos etc.
I know you can install games that have mods and addons that are over 100GB, but you haven't mentioned that you're using any so ...
I haven't done this myself (yet), but there is a very nice new technique on the block, called bcache, there is a wiki about it.
WonderWoofy told me about this software a while back, it's embedded in the kernel since 3.10. So, if you are little adventurous, you could try.
