Also with the SSDs i'm not to sure i understand how they work?
Are they a replcement for a HDD because they are faster or can you run both in conjuction and save certain stuff like games, programs or anything to the ssd and they will load faster? and if so what kind of difference does it make with loading. 2x, 4x,8x ?
It depends what type of application you're using.. Windows will start up alot faster and be alot more responsive on an SSD! Games will load faster and programs will just generally be faster to open, I've found that windows responds to opening stuff like task manager faster, opening the disk management faster. Chrome is more responsive too since the SSD.
That being said, 60GB is fine. Just remember that it's made to be a replacement, but if you're going with 60GB you'll want a traditional HDD too. But if you can fork out for a 120GB+ you could get away with a SSD then grab a green drive later for music/photos as you get more games to install to the SSD. On my 64GB M4 i've got Windows 7 + Office + BF3 and B2K expansions with 23.5GB free.
Ideally 120GB would be the best for SSD only, and maybe just buy an external USB 3.0 Hard drive later on for movies/music etc? That and maybe get a terabyte later on down the road too!
