Default 8 affordable SSDs, 32 to 64 GB

While SSDs are an excellent solution for many reasons, there’s still a major sticking point: the price! Sure, since our first article on them in September 2008, things have changed and the price per GB has been halved. Nevertheless, you still need to lay out €200 for 80 GB and the only way of reducing this is to go for a lower capacity model!

Of course, you do, at a minimum, need to be able to fit the operating system and the most used applications onto your SSD, otherwise having one is hardly worth it. The minimum number of GBs required will of course vary from one user to another and while 32 GB SSDs are only for those who have really honed their weight down, either because they use an operating system other than Windows or because the applications they use don’t take up too much space, a 40 GB model is already much more comfortable and 64 GB will even allow you to install a few games.

60-64Gb is bare minimum for an OS drive for a workstation, if you have a laptop and want to save some data, larger is advised.
32Gb... avoid, of no real use unless for your parents/wife/girlfriends PC which she only uses to browse the web/facebook/email/msn

you can buy anything "for benching"
"for benching" a $1400 VGA card might make sense too.
