32GB or 64GB SSD?

These are the only SSD's in my budget right now. I can probably add another one in a few months.
All I need right now is an SSD that I can install windows 7 on. Will 32GB be enough to hold win7? Or do I need a 64GB?

  1. Go with 64 GB. With a 32 GB SSD after installing windows you'd have only maybe 10-15 GB space left.

    Will the amount of space left affect anything? Remember, I'm not going to be using anything else for the SSD.. just windows.
  3. Well I assume you will want to install at least some programs on it. Otherwise the only benefit of the SSD is boot-up time (and maybe some other windows functions). But if you really aren't going to install anything other than the OS then I guess the 32 GB would work.

    Yeah I'll wait to upgrade in a few months. Then I'll install games and other programs to the other ssd. Thanks.

    Even with just the OS, 32GB is too small.

    Windows will take 25 or so. Throw in a couple of Windows updates, some temp files...and you are now killing the drive lifespan.

    I know budgeting issues suck, but I consider a 32GB boot drive just a waste of time and money.

    Even a 64GB is marginal.
