  1. 128gb is plenty of space for the os, steam, and frequently used programs.
  2. I just put all games on the SSD and the windows, steam, photoshop, etc on the HDD.
  3. You can change Steam's directory if you're worried about space: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpqzqVqR3K4
  4. Ok thanks for the help guys!!
  5. I personally have a Corsair Force GS 240GB (specs at my signature), and for me, right now I am using 80GB of storage, which includes the Operating system, my programs (iTunes, Fraps, Google Earth, CCleaner, etc.), and few games (MW3, BFBC2, and a few other games). It all depends on you how much are you putting to your SSD, if you think 128GB is enough for you, go for it.
  6. ok thank you for the help i just wanted to know is this ssd good i know its got to be good since its a corsair http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233395&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

    That's somehow weird that there is a 128GB version of the Corsair Force GS. lol. It's a good SSD, as I am using it, no regrets, no problems for now (been using it for 4 months). However, I found this SSD to be cheaper, and faster: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-233-342

    Might want to check it out also.
