    Is a 128GB completely out of your budget?

    Not Actually! If 128GB SSD have other benefit rather then only capacity then i will go for 128GB.
    I have lesson some kind of hybrid disk drive (SSD+HDD). Will those good and available in BD?

    Forget hybrid drives, and 128GB SSDs are noticeably faster than 64GB ones, 256GB even faster.

    I highly suggest you get a 128GB though, cause 64GB runs out fast. My 128GB setup was 50GB for Windows and apps, the rest for games. I started with a 64GB as well but after a while I wanted everything on my SSD, and 64gb didn't allow that.

    I prefer to buy a 256GB ssd for 16k and run entire system on it. And for backup, use a portable hdd.

    HDDs are too sluggish.

    Well I can manage with one SSD but I have some games which are always installed. BF3 got bigger and bigger after patches so I had even less room for other games. I ended up buying another 128gb and now I am free from all restraints. But this is only because of my fixed games install, if you don't have anything like that then it shouldn't be a problem.

    Bad plan, you will run out of 256GB in no time at all. Heck I'm running out of 2TB right now let alone 256GB. Its better to get a 128GB/256GB SSD and get a hard drive for all the media (Music, Movies, games backup).

    You can run entire system with 128GB + 1TB/2TB HDD. There's no point in keeping a single 256GB because if you keep your media on it then it won't be enough. And why keep media on an SSD? lol

    Thanks every one!
    I have decided to buy a 128GB SSD for my Desktop and one 256GB SSD for my Laptop. Initially i choose Samsung 840 (non-pro), Crucial m4, Corsair neutron and Samsung 830. Which one will best @price/performance.
    @aayman vai, just my personal interest 2*64GB (Price will be 65*2=130 USD) in RAID or 128GB (110 USD) which one will best considering price/performance/durability?
    Another thing, i want to use my 640GB Laptop HDD in my desktop only for media backup rather then buying a new 1TB desktop HDD, will it a good decision? Laptop HDD will work in desktop properly? (i need not performance as i store only some software, songs and movies, but need durability).

    - - - Updated - - -

    Evey one please help-
    1. I want to buy a 1 HDD for only media storing purpose. Need durability/stability rather then performance. Which one will best Samsung, Segate, WD (Black, Green, Blue), Hitachi?
    2. WD Black come with 5years warranty from factory . It is applicable for BD also?
    3. Previously i do partition my HDD with Partition magic (May be Partition magic 8.0). But after few month use partition had broken(It happen several times!!!). I need a professional level software to partition HDD/SSD. Which one will best Fdisk, PM, or any other?
    4.Can any one give me a reliable link to do partition step by step.


    Please try to cover all points as those are very important for me!
    Thanks in Advance!
