I'm thinking about going with the 128 GB. I want to have windows 7, Photoshop, and my games on the SSD. Everything else can go on a external hard drive.

Well, actually, I don't think I'll be playing more than 3 games at a given time. Would I be able to have Windows, Photoshop, and 3 games on a 64gb?

It'd be a tight fit, Windows generally takes 15-18 GB by itself.
If you can pack all of your crap on ~40 GB or so you'll have a very small amount of breathing space, but it will be enough.

I would highly recommend a 128gb if you have the money to spend. Its better to be safe than sorry and not push the 64gb to the max storage. Also gives you a little more room to expand in the future.

get both. use ssd for os and programs and hdd for games, multimedia, storage, etc.
i'd recommend ordering an ocz vertex 2 60gb ssd (or the like...with a sandforce controller), but keeping the spinpoint f3 1tb.

You should really listen to the advice of the second post.

Get an SSD AND a Hard drive.
don't just get an SSD.
get both.
don't get an SSD and then an external.
Get an SSD and the F3, then install both drives inside the computer.
No point of an external unless you need it to have portable data.

get it? lol.

I do need an external for school, but it can wait.
