Windows 7: Which 64-Bit version of Windows for new I5-2500K System w/ 60gb SSD??

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1

I recently installed a full Win 7 Ult to a 64GB SSD and moved my User and Program data to a separate HDD. The full install with NO programs was 15.5GB with all drivers. After moving those two folders, disabling Hibernate, and setting the Page file to 1536MB the install occupied less than 9.13GB on the SSD.
Semi-new build.

Windows 7 is the first OS to support TRIM, XP does not.
Win 7 works at its best with a page file, but I've found it doesn't need 2 times your installed memory, which is how much will be allocted by the OS unless it is changed manually.

Windows 10 64bit

windows 7 premium is enough for me can have up to 16gb of ram which is more then enough only difference is pro and ultimate have I believe like two or three different features and support up to 128+ of ram which is unnecessary unless your running a demanding sever. Just my piece of advice and how i view things.

If you don`t need the few extras that pro and ultimate can give you then Home Premium will be fine.

Windows 7 64 Home Premium

Aslong as it's a fresh install on an SSD it's not a problem. just put whatever you can (pagefile etc) on your storage drives. It's hard to point out what to go for right now because I see so many warranty's being done for just about every drive at work, but I'd suggest something like OCZ Agility 3 60G(or 120G) SATA3 SSD. I'll be buying one myself soon.

Generally most people will put their nearest and dearest programs, applications and games into their SSD alongside their OS. Anything that doesn't need to be there, Store on another drive.

It isn't difficult at all. You should have gone right to the source. Two mouse clicks later, and you'd have the comparions sheet.

Compare Windows - Microsoft Windows

As for the size, no, that isn't accurate because it will change for each computer. Drivers, AV packages, etc will all take up different amounts of space. But, with some quick research and reading through the answers here, you'll find that 60 GB is more than plenty for a system volume.
