Smallest SSD for windows 7?

I want to know what the smallest SSD size for an installation of windows 7 home premium is. I'm trying to be budgeted but I want my OS on an SSD...Thanks!

Don't really want to store anything else on it, not even steam games or anything...thanks! :D

    All you need is a 32 gig SSD. since my Windows 7 Ult only takes up 20 or so and you want space for updates programs. I recommend something like this.

    I myself have a SanDisk SSD and love it. Runs fast and so far as been very reliable and consistent in performance.

    If you do get a SanDisk always make sure that it's firmware is up to date with their SSD Tool Kit.

  4. The 64 gb ssd's are only $20 more. Probably a better deal. If you use adobe software, they load a lot faster from an ssd.
  5. Would do at least 64 unless your chipset supports intel SRT -would use that as cache if available.
