couldnt he get away with a 30GB SSD HDD for his boot disk?
or does windows 7 need more space then that?
cuz i was thinking of doing that with my rig
using a 30GB SSD to install just 7 and then have a RAID 5 array using 4 500GB HDDs for 1.5 TB as my program and game storage.
then ill canabilize my 1.5 TB HDD and install that for movie storage only
but thats not my question
it is how much space would be a safe ammount for installing 7 on and just 7 on the SSD?
but my opinion is to keep the boot disk
and go with that HDD that you linked Pancake92 as your storage
with 32MB of cache it should be awesome!
