SSD space??

I do lot of photoshop stuff and gaming on my PC. How much space SSD I need to install windows and photoshop along with few other softwares? Also if I keep my games on HDD, will I still get benefit of SSD?

You should get at least a 120GB SSD. As for your games being on a HDD then they will not benefit from having an SSD. I have a 120GB SSD and I just put the game I'm currently playing on it. Means maps etc load faster.

So if I install softwares and windows on SSD and games on HDD, all my programs and windows will benefit but games will take longer to load?? As tw33k mentioned, 120 GB will be enough.

any recommendations which one to get???
