    For windows alone, 64g is fine, but 128g would be better. As far as games go, I would install those to the hdd as speed of launch is not critical. If you really want to put them on the ssd, you might want to consider 256gb.

    IMO, 128gb is a good spot, you can put your os, some "must have" programs on the ssd, and the rest on the hdd.

  2. 128 gb Samsung Pro for your OS and most used applications and a few games.
    256 would be ideal if you can afford it.
