    My laptop has a 64gb one which is enough for all the programs I want on it. Huge difference boots faster than my desktop now. For desktop I would really like 120ish, enough for windows and many programs/games. Though just the pure improvement in windows is big enough to make a noticeable difference with a smaller one I believe, most multi-player games load before other people on the server already so not really a need to install them on an ssd.

    128Gb M225, anything smaller would be a serious PITA.

    It's already a bit irritating having to backup steam content to put on my NAS.

    Waiting for a 64GB Kingston to arrive.

    Will be very happy to get that installed!

    Crucial M225 128GB. After 18 months, I still think it's one of the best upgrades I've ever bought.

    Started off with an OCZ Summit 60GB, then a OCZ Vertex 2E 60GB. Wanna upgrade to a Vertex 3 120GB but spent a lot on my DSLR.

    Yeah, should have made it clearer in that I feel it's probably the best purchase I've made since my first 3DFX card, but the size is still a pain.

    I don't have one, but the MINIMUM I am looking at is 120GB. In other words: Windows + programs + free space for proper system operation, windows updates etc... and 2-3 projects, and possibly a game or two, so that I can actually see the benefit of my SSD in action in games.

    mushkin callisto deluxe 60gb - windows 7 / program files;
    intel x-18m g1 80gb - /users

    i have a server for large files, and i run lean so the small drives are no bother to me. i have maybe a total of 60gb between the two disks. i only keep installed what i use regularly, and only 1-2 games at any time or else i never finish them.

    60Gb Samsung drive in my NC10 Netbook, means the only moving part in it is the fan, so it makes no noise at all.

    16 gb in my laptop, I have win 7 installed with microsoft office suite and that is about all i can do with it. Really wish it had a little larger drive.

    2x 128Gb C300 for my gaming rig. One of the best investments I have ever made. Steam is fast and boot times are great. I couldn't imagine being set up like I am with less than 128Gb the second drive just makes things roomy.

    Vertex 2E 120. Again as others have said ... best purchase i ever made as an upgrade. Took me a looooong time to justify the cash but belive the hype! Love it, just want a Vertex 3 now :D

    Currently have a 64 GB C300. I can tell that it won't be long until a Vertex 3 makes an appearance...
