If I am going to have seperate data drives, how big of an application drive is sufficient for Windows XP, Photoshop, Office, Outlook, various games, etc?
I'm considering a 75gb raptor. With Windows Vista close, will 75gb be enough? I'm thinking the 150gb version would be overkill for an app drive space wise. Although, the 150's are faster . . .
To guage your apps partition or space needs, look at it this way: Standard OS's fully installed work best if you have at least 600mb to 1gb. Then large productivity apps with complete installs take about 300-700mb. Depending if you are emulating games with virtual drives, games could take any where from 200mb to 1gb. 75gb is definatly enough room for what you want. Just make sure you have storage options.
