That's all that's really needed for an SSD, IMO. Of course, I'd still have a Hard Drive for storage and for the other games and what not.
Seems like more work to me. I cant really even consider such an option (your 64gb drive for OS and etc). Most of my games are within Steam and my Steam folder is 62GB, and the last thing I want to do is move games in and out of the Steam folder (hassle) so it's all or nothing. Now add in 8GB for WoT and 25GB for WoW (lol) plus the OS and I already
need at minimum probably around a 128GB SSD. That 62GB Steam size is with only 15 games actually loaded of the 43 games I own within Steam. Then lets remember that Diablo 3 and BF3 are coming later this year.. and will surely be played often right, and in the case of BF3 could be Steam as well? So even if one goes the route of a big (and very expensive) SSD boot drive/key apps&games, we will have to rearrange the SSD and move stuff around for whats currently being used more often over the course of the build. Bleh!
I thought we've all moved away from worrying about having enough disk space, hadn't we? Well we had until SSD's came along. To me.. SSD caching seems like the perfect bridge tech till SSD's come down in price and large drive sizes become affordable.Edited by lethal - 5/11/11 at 6:37pm
