Hello. New build. I want to have an ssd strictly to run windows7. Nothing more. I will have a velociraptor hdd for my games, movies etc. Now, my question is how many GB should I get for my ssd if I'm only going to run windows 7 on it? How many gb does it take to run windows 7 efficiently on my hard drive?
OCZ Technology 60 GB Vertex 2 Series SATA II
this is the one I use..
upon install I un-installed my HDD's and then with only the SSD installed; I installed my OS.
after completion I re-installed my HDD (went down to just one instead of two),
and took off from there.
win7 sets up all SSD settings.
30GB isn't enough for Win 7, you need at least 60GB. And get the Vertex 2 or Crucial C300 if fit in your budget.
If I'm just going to install my os, windows 7, on the ssd, why do I need 60GB? The details on newegg say it requires 20GB if I have the 64 bit version. Couldn't I get away with 30 or 40 gb? I plan on using a velociraptor hd to put my games, music, movies on.
