Two can play this game. This is my system drive with all my programs installed. If I get an SSD I want at LEAST everything on this drive on it and 60GB is no where NEAR enough space for me....

Is that including games? Or just common applications? I don't see how applications can take up that much unless you have big applications or lots of them.

Only hesitation to go up to 120 is it is a huge price jump...

Did you move your pagefile to another drive? and if you don't use hybernate, did you disable it? If you haven't, thats where 16gb of your free space went.

Is caching the best option? I've debated back and forth.

Bad thing about caching is it has to be in your cache (i.e. you have had to have loaded it before, and probably recently so it hadn't left the cache).

I guess I haven't given it serious though but maybe it would be worth it to cache. If I cached, what size is recommended for that?
