I hope to build a new computer within the next two weeks and I plan on getting a 128GB SSD. My question was, will my ssd be able to hold windows 8.1, planetside 2, garrys mod, tf2, and COD WaW, along with other functions such as microsoft office 2013 and the important programs?

If you were wondering Here is a link to my build :

SSD just increase data rates and costs 1$ per GB . it is good for OS but for gaming it only helps in loading games faster . graphical representation is PURELY on GPU and CPU . . so for OS and some softwares, samsung evo 120 is good

Yes I know that games rely on the CPU and GPU, but my question was will the SSD be able to hold all of it?

A 128GB SSD can hold the OS, MS Office, and a LOT of applications. My 128GB SSD is currently ~50GB used, with OS and ALL applications besides games.

Games, however, are a different story. My meager Steam folder is ~50GB. And that is with NO newish games.
A 128GB probably won't hold all of that. Nor does it need to. You can put them elsewhere.

Just with:
planetside 2 - 15GB
COD WaW - 8GB

That's 23GB.

Titanfall for PC is 48GB, blargh, and games will only get bigger over the next couple of years.

$60 2TB 7200rpm drive, buy it unless you have deep pockets to get a large 480 or 512 GB SSD

Your parts list does not show a HDD for mass storage. I would highly recommend getting one for your programs. When a HDD goes bad you usually have some warning signs, with a SSD, they have a tendency to just die in an instant. Fair warning.

I remember when Falcon 3.0 came out. People were moaning about the 40MB drive space it needed.

Still have my fully functional 80 MB hard disc. Sadly all the 210MB and 420MB died (Not sure how many platters and heads it had, but that 210MB was a dual 3.5 inch, sounded like a rock crusher.
