ATM i have 17GB free of 60GB and i have all my apps on there like MS office, winrar, utorrent and etc so there is deff enough space for normal things.

But as for games i say get a storage drive, because games do take alot of space and besides loading into a game a normal HDD is all you need

It's just to start with and it's convenient. The MEIV offers more than just overclocking, but tweaking is it's strong point. It does have a lot of options that may overwhelm someone new to this, so the Auto tune feature is nice.
