typical game these days is 12-20gb, so on a 60gb ssd 1 large game + os + data cache = pretty much full SSD,
just a 60gb ssd used on TPU's motherboard review OS up to date with all benchmarks installed to the SSD fills it completely,
you will be surprised how quickly 60gb will fill if your a power user,
yea win7 is usually 20gb i think but im going to move restore points to a 120gb drive i use soley for backups and that should bring the OS down to 7-8Gb if i remember correctly, i will be installing ArmA II and BF3 on the SSD (ArmA II is 15Gb and BF3 is roughly the same) so i should have just enough room with 60Gb...
another question i have that some of you might be able to answer is how do i install the OS on one drive (the SSD) but make the C: drive my 500Gb drive?
i want to do this so that when i install programs they will default to my 500Gb drive instead of the SSD, i would like to do this so that i know exactly what i put on my SSD and that i know everything else defaults to my bigger drive.
