I am thinking about buying a SSD but they are pretty expensive. I have a coupon that lowers the price of this one to $99.99. Is that a good deal?

Yes it is a good deal.

Will 64GB be large enough for you?

I think it will be. I am a gamer. I really just want to install the OS on there, a couple start up programs and things like photoshop on it. I am not really going to store all my games on it just my most used programs and of course the OS.

I am thinking 64GB will be enough and this is a good deal so I think I will go for it.

Never used a SSD before. Anything I need to know before I buy?

If you motherboard doesn't support SATA III, you may be better off getting the Corsair Nova, which is 1) cheaper and 2) has better performance on a SATA II port.

As far as getting started, the most important thing is to remember to put your SATA controller to AHCI mode before installing Windows. After that, there are many tweak guides around on ways to improve the performance and get needed space back from Windows to the SSD. I have created a guide, you can review...
