Hi All,
I am in the process of getting my parts together for a new build and I have a couple of storage questions
First I was wondering what you guys would recommended size wise for an SSD for Windows 7 Pro?

Here is what I'm planning on doing:

SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (For Windows 7 Pro, Windows Updates, Antivirus, OC utilities ETC.)
SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive ( For all my games)
Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (For Storage. Pics, Videos, Documents, Backups ETC)

So Basically 1 small SSD for the Boot Drive/ OS
a larger SSD for Games
And a big HDD for mass Storage

My Question is what is the Recommended size for the SSD that The OS will be on?
Do I need to go bigger for the OS (I plan on running this build for a few years) or can I go Smaller?

Before we get into a debate on TLC vs MLC flash I am also looking at the Pro series from Samsung as well...
Any Tips or Ideas are welcome
