What can I do with a 16GB SDD?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm putting together a new build:
i5-2500k
6950 2gb sapphire toxic
8gb g.skill ram 1333mhz
1tb spinpoint f3 hdd
ASRock extreme3 gen3

My friend is giving me his 16gb SSD that he doesn't use. This won't be big enough for a windows 7 64-bit boot drive so I really don't know what to do with it. Somebody suggested I go with SRT, but the minimum for that according to Intel is 18.6GB

Any suggestions?

Install your favorite PC game on it.

Put one game that you play all the time.
Like BF3.

In your situation I might try:

FancyCache
http://www.romexsoftware.com/en-us/fancy-cache/

I saw this while researching SRT the other day. It's software that peforms a similar function to SRT. The major downside to Fancycache is the data isn't persistant thru reboots. But if you don't reboot that often maybe it could be of some benefit.

Are you using 64-bit? Also, do you have all windows updates installed?

Install Linux on it and dual boot.

I've considered this, but seeing as I primarily game, linux will never get used. If this were going in a netbook or something, I would definitely go this route.
