I recently purchased a Patriot Pyro SE 60GB. I've never had a SSD before. Only thing I plan on using the hard drive for is Windows 7 and WoW. After purchasing it, I got to thinking it was to small. Is it big enough, or should I get another one and set it up Raid 0?

Here's my set up:
ECS A790GXM-AD3 Motherboard, Athlon II X4 640 processor, 16gb of Crucial ram, 2 XFX 5670s, Thermaltake 500w PSU, Antec Three Hundred Case, older 160gb Sata Western Digital hard drive.

You should buy at least a 120 gig to have an os and a few games on it,60 is a tad small.

Thanks for the response! I got the drive for $37 after rebate from Tiger Direct so I figured I'd give it a try. I guess i'll put it in an older netbook and order a 120gb for my desktop.

if you only want to do Windows 7 and WoW then you could actually get away with the 60gb

lower the pagefile and delete hyberfil.sys file to recover a large amount of space

though with the recent price drop in ssd drives if you can afford a bigger drive then go for it
