SSD - max capacity?

Just built a new pc and using a 128gb SSD drive.
With Win 7, MS Office and all my pictures/music/files, I'm using about 65GB with about 55GB left -- so just over half full.

I've read before that SSD drives should always have ~25% free space for maximum performance.

Am I ok if I fill the drive to about 80GB, or should I not worry about that?

normal HD's should have a fair amount of space left but SSD's will only slow down on trim. the actual data speed will take a very small hit but the longevity of the drive will take a larger hit as trim wont be able to properly move data around.
