Thanks! I know, I really want an ssd too, but I just don't have the funds yet (splurged on the core i7 and 7950 lol) and I have a lot of data already stored on my main drive, more than any affordable ssd can hold

You only need a 32GB SSD to run the OS, everything else could be on a spinner.

I'm aware of that, but I have a lot of data and migrating ONLY the OS into another drive while keeping all my data/programs intact and working requires a full format

That depends on your equipment and what you are running on it. My C:/ drive takes up 54.5GB, most of which is taken up by the hyberfil.sys file, which is larger than usual since I have 32GB of RAM (I need hibernation enabled for my UPS). Others may be able to keep things down to less than 32GB. Gamers may need far more if they want the fast loading speed an SSD gives and their games are very large.

Something else to keep in mind is that SSDs like to have at least 20-25% overhead to avoid excessive writes, which shortens the life of SSDs. If an OS (the OS itself, programs, etc.) is 32GB, then a 60-64GB SSD would be needed. I'm running a 128GB SSD, overkill for sure but I'll never worry about running out of space while maintaining more than enough overhead. I'm considering increasing the overprovisioning to help prolong the life (although it will probably outlast my machine anyway).
