Best Hard Disk Configuration in Macbook Pro

Hello Everyone,

First time posting here, but have been to this site before to read up on all sorts of great things. Love the community here.
I can't seem to find the answer for this odd question I have.

BACKGROUND/EQUIPMENT
I have a Early 2011 Macbook pro 15", the long idea has been for me to install two Sata 3 SSD's as this machines is generally used as a portable workstation for smaller film projects. However it has just occurred to me as I read into the idea some more that Apple never fully acknowledge or provided a fix for the Optical Sata 3 port to work with a Sata 3 drives without problems. The main Sata 3 port works fine, but it would seem that the optical sata port, in 2011, will only be stable with a Sata 2 Hard Drive.

QUESTION:
My train of thought tells me that it's more important for the media of my projects to be on a faster drive so that it can feed it to the application fast enough. I don't use ProRes all the time, but the rare times I do Im wondering if I should make the Sata 2 port my boot/applications drive, and the Sata 3 port my media/project drive?

WORKFLOW:
-Final Cut Pro 7
- After Effects CS 5.5
- some PhotoShop CS 5.5
- ProRes422 or ProRes422 (LT)

Thanks in advance,

Jason
