    22GB for a 'fresh' install @ MoP, the biggest thing destroying SSDs is Steam, mine runs up to 264GB with a lot of games uninstalled (well over 50%) if you don't keep a lid on where its putting games and remove/move them as they become less important, it'll eat up most of your SSD

    Windows 10-20gb
    WoW 30gb

    That right there uses up almost all of a 64gb SSD.

    For me... SC2, WoW PTR, D3, GW2, ME3, Deadspace 2, Borderlands 2.... That's another 90gb there, well beyond what a 128gb can sustain. For some people, 128 might be enough. For most gamers 128 may not be enough

    which is my basic point. Games take up a lot of room. 128gb, at least IMO, is just too small for most gamers. Especially those that do MMO's where there are expansions happening and taking up even more space.

    Sorry had class.

    But yeah i play 3 mmos (WOW/STO/TERA) + Diablo 3/League of Legends/Borderlands 2/Starcraft 2. Those are just the games that i generally run at least 1-2 times a week. I have a lot of others. I spent the longest time running on a DSL modem and could never bring myself to delete anything for chance that i might want to play again. My Steam library is over 50 titles in length. Being a full time IT student who takes all his classes online has some advantages :O

    I don't feel the need to keep my tv shows/anime/movies/music on the SSD. As well as stuff like Microsoft office or Virtual Box (for a silly linux class).

    But thanks for all the help guys, I have Sean's guide bookmarked.

    21GB for WoW. Look instead of guessing.

    14GB for Rift's free version and 15GB for GW2, not that big games really.

    I have currently 5 games installed on my SSD: WoW, GW2, Rift, Path of Exile and Diablo3.. Grand total is 66.6GB (somewhat amusingly). 120GB of SSD would be enough for those + Windows. I have currently 150GB used of 250GB SSD and it seems to be the perfect size, 120GB was too cramped.
