Thanks I think I'll definitely be going for a 60GB. I just don't particularly want to spend the extra £50 on doubling the space. I am considering getting a Z68 motherboard though- Could someone explain this new Smart Response Technology (SSD caching) that they can do?
How does this help? What does it do? Should I use *some* of my drive for this?
Thanks smile.gif

What exactly is this new Z68 SSD caching? Could someone explain what it does?
Could I use *some* of my SSD for it? How would it benefit me?

Not to much to get from it.
Read this article, it explains it good!
EDIT: You could probably use some of your SSD from it, by making a partition. But I don't see the point of it really.

it looks to me that the caching with SSDs is used when you install everything on the larger HDD and it stores recently added data on the SSd for quicker access. Read through the link to see if that's what you get out of it. It seems that it is used instead of using the SSD as a boot drive and other drive for applications and data. Personally, I went from an OCZ LE 100GB to a C300 256GB b/c I ran out of space on the first one.

60GB should be fine if you don't mind moving stuff around though, I had that problem with the OCZ. I don't like having to choose which programs i'm able to install.

Thanks very much to you both- that link is very useful! I also don't like having to choose which programs i'm able to install...but I figure I can just be careless with installing programs on my secondary normal 500GB HDD right? Caching with the SSD definitely seems a good option but I may save that for a later date. Maybe when I get some more money I could add an additional smaller SSD to my PC and use it to cache one of my HDD's?

Yeah it should be enough but if you can swing the funds for a 120GB then go for that. I have a 60GB SSD as my bot up drive but wish I went with a 120GB instead so I can load some games & programs on it without filling it up.

What about the intermediate sizes? Yknw... 80GB or these 96GB I've seen that are around the £130 mark?
