8GB Solo OS SSD, worth it? Or just go Big? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
yes an 8GB drive will be constantly full, so it will be slow as hell after a month.

A 64 gb M4 + a 1TB F3 works out to being less $ than a 128GB M4 and will give more versatility I think. You get the benefit of fast bootup and snappy windows plus extra storage space. Thats what I did anyway.

Looks like you already have an f3 so it would only cost you like $120 for the 64gb.

you can buy a 20GB(14 min) SSD for windows 7 and a bigger one for rest of the things

i personally have my medieserver with a 30GB ssd and its win7 only take 14gb space but of course you have to "mod" the windows a bit, i cant hibernate and the the pagefile is deleted too, that gave me about 12gb free..

I would much rather spend the 80 extra and get 128GB of storage, which I did. I will so post up my benches on what % of free data works best with M4s

I am predicting 20-25% will be its sweet spot.
