Windows default install is ~12 GB. Do what I did, slim it down a bit by taking out simple things (hibernate, sys restore, and the 30 language packs i never use) my install is down to 8GB. After updates, 9-10 GB
Office is 2GB on its own. I stopped using office after finding Google Docs to be more convenient. Just saying. Office count around 2GB tho
3 Games... welp, check the properties of the game directories to find out. Thats all I can say

all in all, I recomend at least 60GB SSD for anyone. Any more than that is your sole judgement. I recomend buying an SSD with the intent of filling it less than half way. I have ~130GB of stuff to keep on SSD, i bought a 250GB ssd.

Don't. Heres why: RAID 0 using onboard controller adds access latency. RAID 0 will only increase throughput, which again is proven useless for real-world speed. What helps real-world speed is direct IOPS and access latency. RAID hurts both of them. RAID will help 32depth queed IOPS in server environment, not end-user.

Trust me, I've gone through at least 8 different drive setups. Easiest and most convenient way: SSD for main stuff like OS, apps, games... HDD in RAID or not (which ever you choose) for other stuff like movies, music, documents, archived games you dont play often, backups, etc

Really man I think you should take the SSD route. I convinced a friend to do it earlier this month and he keeps talking about "idk how ppl can deal with HDD as an OS drive now, SSD is far superior"

I agree with him. You will not be disappointed.

Raid on SSD's is pants, longer boot, over twice as long to do a quick virus scan, no trim. Noticiably slower doing things then a single drive despite benchmarks looking good. Pain to set up, hassle to reinstall if you want to do a secure erase

Go for a single drive you won't look back.

If it's any help, I'm currently installing Win7 on an A-data S596 SSD, and plan on putting things like page file, and steam, and other big things on the 640x4 raid 0.

I'm an excited boy tonight!
