SSD size question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all

Well i have finally decided to get an SSD for my boot drive.
Up until this morning i have been thinking about getting a 60gb drive, but i have been slightly worried that it might not be enough space, i was planing on also running a 320gb disk for most games.

However 10 minutes ago i found out that i have at least some work (my company does contract work so it can be sporadic), this means i am able to afford a bigger 120gb drive.

I was planing on going out and buying it today, so quick answers would be appreciated.

I basically want your experiences with 60gb ssds for windows installs.

I have a 64GB SSD for my OS and it works out fine. I am at a little over 1/2 capacity, with OS, Sims, Civ5, and Gimp. I would suggest a larger one if you plan on using it for Games and OS but just for OS then 60GB is fine.

Also you can change your Downloads folder in Windows to run off of a larger non SSD drive and that saves quite a bit of space.

yes i plan on having my current OS drive, 320gb, as a local downloads and to store most games on. I will set up a server to hold my current storage drives.

I'm just thinking that if i get a bigger one it will let me install more applications, because if i pay the money for a fast hard drive, i want to be able to use it

Yea. I believe most 120 gig drives have slightly higher performance then there little brothers. Either way coming from a HDD your not going to know what to do it loads so fast LOL. It is arguably the best upgrade!!
