Default Re: Finishing up my build, quick HDD question.

windows 7 20 GB
WoW - 25 GB?
LoL - 10 GB?
SWTOR - 25 GB?

I don't play those games, so that's my estimate.
if my estimates are close, that's only about 80 GBs used up.
you should still have roughly 35 Gbs for other programs and files.
why not just go ahead and install windows and decide if you need the extra storage later?

35 GBs is not a whole lot by today's standards. but if you can put off a hard drive purchase until you need the space, you might just get more bang for your buck.

Hmm. Alright, I'll order everything but the HDD tomorrow and setup everything. I can always just limit what I DL for 2 weeks until my next paycheck. Thanks for throwing some logic at me. :P

Hows everything going?
Did the build go smoothly?

Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.
