I'd like to install Windows 7 on its own SSD drive (everything else would be on a standard hard disk), but I don't want to break the bank. I saw a 40 GB one on newegg.com for US$124.99, but I've heard that you get better performance with SSD drives if they have more free space on them.
On Microsoft's site it says that you only need 16 GB for the 32-bit version. It seems like having more than twice that would be enough... Thoughts?
