Yeh supplier said exact same, so you think get a SSD just for windows, and install games to HD.?

What size would I need for windows 7?
Yes , you can do that , or what i do is i have 64GB SSD for windows ,and a 240GB is were i install all games and STEAM , if you can afford to get two SSD -- and your 1TG hard drive that's a great start ,
SSD 64GB for windows is fine you can go larger if you like .
SSD 240GB or larger for games , thats all i have mine for .
1 TB Hard Drive ------------------and your sorted .

Install only games on the bigger SSD you get and install windows on small SSD .
Install what ever you like on the 1 TB drive .

With windows on the SSD your system will boot up so much quicker , good luck with build :)

Thanks joe, my budget of $1400 went to $1600, but the SSD will have to wait a month or so,
I spent extra on K chip, and a 4gb Nvidea 980,

Got it now, and all ready to go, haven't installed anything yet other than operating system, it's looking good,

Now , Asseto corsa? Steam seems a good deal?

I racing ?

F1 2014, and do a few mod installs?

Also can I ask, my g27 rig, will it plug n play? Or do I need Logitech profiler?

Thanks again

Nick.
