    Q about SSD sizes

    is 120 gb enough to put os and all my games on or does it feel too small especially now? do u think its worth it to invest in 256gb?

    I would invest in the 250 if you want to put "all" of your games on it, you should never fill any kind of drive past 75%.

    How many games is 'all my games?" If it's 2 games then yes. If you're looking to install 75 games from your steam library, you're going to need a bigger drive. Unless you have tons of cash to spare, I would stick with a 120ish gb SSD to put your OS on (I have WoW on mine as well) and pick up a 1TB HDD for the rest. If you have a lot of games, even 250 isn't all that much.

    Only kind of true. When you fill a mechanical drive that much files start getting fragmented and can reduce performance. SSDs should have a bit extra room for TRIM to function properly, but I wouldn't say it needs 25% free.

    Depends on how many games you have OP.

    Find the total of all your games and see if 125gb is ok for you.

    Can't read minds over the internet so I have no clue how many games is your "all".

    What I can say from personal experience going from 60 to 120 to 250GB that the 120GB was too small to fit WoW+GW2+D3+ Skyrim along with Windows and all my other installed programs. 250GB has about 1/3 free so it seems to be the perfect size... for me.

    Trolling should be.
