If you were to put your Software on an SSD Drive

Say: Windows 7 Home Premium, M$ Office Pro (or Equiv), a Photo Editor, the usual Protection and a little more.

All files to go on a normal Disk drive, say 1TB.

What size of SSD would one recommend.

I shall probably not be buying until the late spring but am just beginning to get my ideas together.

I don't know how long you've been around this particular block but this particular nomenclature has been around for, to my certain knowledge, 14 years at the very least.

Yes I am a Business man, but that does not deny me the right to suggest that M$ have an almost Monopoly position which they exploit to the full.

Now, if you have nothing to add to my question, could you go back to bed!

w€€ €ddie, knew I'd wind you up. Not nice when it backfires eh? Just because the "nomenclature " (another name for childishness) has been around for 14 years doesdn't make it right or less childish.
Night night.

Word Origin & History

nomenclature

1610, "a name," from Fr. nomenclature, from L. nomenclatura "calling of names," from nomenclator "namer," from nomen "name" + calator "caller, crier," from calare "call out" (see calendar). Nomenclator in Rome was the title of a steward whose job was to announce visitors, and also of a prompter who helped a stumping politician recall names and pet causes of his constituents. Meaning "list or catalogue of names" first attested 1635; that of "system of naming" is from 1664; sense of "terminology of a science" is from 1789. Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2010 Douglas Harper

Anyway doesn't matter.

This year I'm planning on buying a barebones system from Novatech. Possibly an i3 cpu. Was thinking of getting an ssd for the os, security and monitoring apps for broadband and cpu temp. The rest would be installed on a second ordinary sata drive. These SSDs are still expensive so thinking of a 64 GB ssd. Should be enough. It's a 2.5" drive and an adapter to make it fit.

I currently have the Vertex 2 55Gb which contains my O/S and programs which total at the moment 102.I still have 18GB remaining.Everything else is on a separate drive.
click here my case comes with the necessary fittings for the SSD but the Vertex also comes with the adapter.

Crucial will soon be bringing out the C400 SSD drives which will be faster still.

So size is really up to you and what you need and can afford.

I initially had the Kingston but was not overly impressed with its performance.

What I should really do is to find out the Installed Volume of Windows 7 Home Premium, M$ Office Pro, a Photo Editor, and the usual Protection programs, add them all up and then perhaps double it, to give me the required Volume.

I was hoping that someone had already done that and would be prepared to share, thereby saving me the trouble.

At the present, prices of SSDs are not expected to not drop much in the next year or two, so having a lot of redundant space likely to be relatively expensive. That is why I have put the question.
