I would like an SSD primarily for booting the OS windows 7. I am currently looking at the intel x25-v 40gb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Is 40gb sufficient? Any thoughts on this particular ssd? Any recommendations on other ssd? Thanx in advance.

The 40GB Intel drive seems to be well regarded and is probably a good choice if you can't afford one of the larger drives. guanyu210379 July 7, 2010 11:14:33 AM I would recommend to get the 80GB one. Believe me you will end up needing about 64-80GB storage space for your OS and your programs. And bigger as 80GB space is not recommendable in term of price.
