Windows 7: What size is your SSD and what's on it?

What size is your SSD and what's on it?

Finally got one for the first time: Corsair Force Series GT 120 GB for $88 after rebate, impossible to turn that down.

Since space is a premium on these things, I'm curious what people keep on it besides the OS? I'm gonna put Photoshop, Office and various small crap. Games, I guess? Only playing Civ V Gods & Kings now, nothing else. I've got other HDDs for storage.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP 1

I have a 120 Gb Corsair Force III SSD and it has plenty of room for all my applications, while all my data is saved on a HDD. However, I am not a gamer so I am not familiar with how much space games require.

Have you used the crucial clone software or have you just reinstalled your OS on the SSD. Im interested in buying one of these drives and want to know if cloning the OS works it as fast as crucial state. Thanks for any info you can give me

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have an OCZ Vertex 3 60 GB (for half a year now)
I am using it for Windows and all my programs as well as StarCraft 2 (all my other games are on a regular HDD, although I wish I had a 240 GB SSD for all my Games).

I saved a lot of space by using a 8 GB RAM-Disk (gt 16 GB total) and limiting pagefile on the SSD to 100mb. Also disabled all kinds of copies (only ever keep the latest backup file and so on), so even with all programs that I use + SC2 + Windows I still have 15 GB of 55 GB free.

But my next thing to upgrade will either be a 240GB SSD for my games (as indicated above) or a ~120GB SSD for my laptop for university. I hate how slow that thing boots even though it has 8 GB of RAM, yet in comparison it seems to take forever for everything
--> I guess that is a good example of "First World Problems"
