20GB will be hitting it close on the 64bit client of Win7 and to be honest wouldn't be worth the money. Smallest you should go would be 40GB, for some storage room for applications, updates, and a better dollar/GB ratio.

That^ or a 64GB, the bigger the better.

I wanted to buy 60GB SSD just for the system (Crucial M4 or Corsair Force GT, both have synchronous memory, unlike Agility 3) but then I found that the 60GB versions are slow. I took my time and collected some spare money and ended up with a Force GT 120GB SDD and that was a good decision I must tell you - one thing that it's faster, another that I can put all apps and BF3 on that and I still got heaps of room left (66,5 free out of total 117GB, Win 7 x64, not a fresh install, quite a clogged up system).

It was like that: I wanted 60GB and I was going to buy it but it turned out to be much slower than 90GB and I wouldn't have much free space on it with Win 7x64 and some apps that I use, so then I decided to bite it and go for the 90GB... but then I realized that the 90GB was only $10 or so cheaper than the "full blown" 120GB and I went for that. Sure it was much more money than I wanted to spend, but my experience is that if you skimp on hardware, you pay twice. This SSD is faster and thanks to lower usage it should live much longer.

I paid around $160 for that (direct currency conversion)... but then again that deal on the Agility 3 for $65 is insane... I'd buy it right off if I was from US and give it to my brother

why are the 60 GB versions slower?
