How much difference will there be in performance with a 60gb caching ssd (intel srt) and a 120gb ssd, 2 partitions with 1 for caching and 1 for os..?
I have a bit of money to spend and i dont know if i should get a 60 or 120gb ssd.. The 120gb would be 20€ more expensive. Or could i get a 60gb one and do the same with that as i would do with the 120gb one?

Get the 120, and don't cache any part of it. No need to.

The 120 can hold the OS and all your applications apart from games.

I agree with USAFRet 100%

If you can afford to purchase a 120GB SATA 3 6Gb/s solid state drive, then there is no need to do the caching. You should be able to install Microsoft Windows, your software applications, utilities, and a favorite game or two on your ssd. If you have more favorite games you can store them on a hard disk drive and swap them out as needed. It is a typical user scenario.
