Is a 90gb sufficient for a couple of games? - Page 2

Sustained read/write speeds can be ignored in 99.9% of cases. Do you have a equally fast drive you are transferring massive amounts of data too? No? Then why care about sustained read/write speeds? For 99.9% of users, they will never come close to maxing the sustained speeds of the drive outside of benchmarks. The M4s have proven Reliablity, and amazing 4k speeds. 4K speeds are what you want to look for for overall "snappiness". Not sustained speeds.

I had a 80GB X25-M before getting my 256GB M4. I suggest saving for the 128GB M4. 90GB will be a headache.

I have a force3 90GB with SC2, RE5, and L4D2. I'm getting close to having only about 20-30GB free, but I'd say that's perfectly acceptable.

Maybe if I turned off and removed every single option that that OS provides I could get that low. Why would I want the Ultimate version if I wasn't going to use any of the features? Mine is with every single option enabled.

How's it feel to pay for Windows 7 XP?

It's called a custom OS install. He used nLite or a similar program to customize the OS before he installed it. You can remove much more from the OS if you do it before you install it.
