Boot Camp and Multiple Internal Hard Drives

I have a new iMac coming with a 2TB hard drive and a 256GB SSD.

I would like to have the Mac OSX on the 2TB with a 500GB Windows 7 partition installed on it.

I would also like to partition the entire SSD for Windows as well.

My question is: Is there a way to just format the SSD in NTFS and have it recognized by the partition I created on the 2TB, or do I have to install an entire additional copy of Windows 7 on the SSD partition as well?

In Windows, I want to install a program which is very demanding on resources and it is recomended that it is intalled on a separate drive from the Windows 7 operating system files.

Thank you!!
