Btw, I work with RAW Canon files from my 7D. On avg each pic is about 30MB.

You could use the drive(wouldn't need to be a large drive 30GB would be more than enough) for windows and other program's cached files(Swap) and for the pictures you are currently working with. That way you wouldn't have to re-install the OS. cool.gif

You'd probably still have money left over to get a decent videocard if you just bought a 30GB SSD.

windows + adobe cs >30gb
Then at least 20% free space*, 10gb photoshop swap and 4-8gb windows swap.
60gb are the bare minimum i would use.

*SSDs NEED to not be filled or performance will drastically decrease.

That's why I suggested just using it as a swap-file drive and for storing active work files.

^So I would install and run CS5/LR3 off the SSD while the files I'm working with are in the SSD as well? And whenever I'm done editing, I export to wherever I want and delete the RAW files from the SSD?
