  1. I have a 60gb and if you can be a data nazi and keep it clean then it works fine, if not then go for a 128gb. I would go for a 128gb (or 120gb) anyways because 60 and 128 are pretty similar in price. If you haven't decided on your brand of SSD, I recommend either Intel or Samsung they are the best.

    Well the sweet spots seems to be 120/128GB. I own a 256GB but its not even half full. LOL

    My reasoning is if you can afford a 256GB, rather get it as the performance degrades a bit when you go above 60% capacity.

    If you cant afford it, you will be fine with 120/128GB, it will still be MUCH faster than an HDD.
  3. You probably don't need more than a 64 Gb SSD for only those programs, but I'd say the sweet spot for an SSD right now is in the 128-256 Gb range.

    A 64 Gb can be had for $80, whereas a 128 Gb can be found for $110

    You'll be able to put a few more programs on there that you use often as well. Personally, I'd go for the 128 Gb SSD to give you some flexibility, and if you find an amazing deal go for the 256 Gb.

    OCZ too, after a few firmware fixes they did...

    As for specifics, either get an OCZ agility 3/4 or Samsung 840 pro or 830. Depending on what you can afford.

  6. Alright thanks guys! Helped a lot.
  7. I'll throw in my lot for the OCZ drives as well.

    The 3 series should be stayed away from, but the Vertex 4 is currently the best value proposition on the market, followed closely by the Samsung 830.

    In terms of pure speed, the OCZ Vector and the Samsung 840 pro are neck-and-neck.

    (And the Samsung 840 is an abomination that should never be bought.)
