  1. After installing the OS, your going to be left with around 90 GB's. Don't know what else you intend to store or what size files you work with, but when the the drive gets close to full, performance will decrease. If your only going to have one drive, I would suggest getting at least 240 GB's. Otherwise, add a cheap HDD or another SSD later for storage.

    If that is the only drive, no.
    At least a 250GB SSD.
  3. There's another HDD (1tb)

    OK then...you're good. A 250GB is currently a much better buy for price vs size, but if all you can do is the 120GB, go for it.
  5. This is the configuration of my PC:
    CABINET

    iTek Replay 2.0 USB3.0

    iTek 500 Watt Silent fan

    MOTHERBOARD
    ASRock Z170 Pro 4

    CPU

    Intel i7 6700K 4,00 Ghz

    VIDEO

    Intel HD Graphics 530

    MEMORY

    Ram 16 GB 2133 Mhz DDR4

    HARD DISK

    1 (or 2) TB Sata3 Seagate/W.D

    SSD 120 GB (or 250gb) Kingston V300

    CARD READER,

    DVD LG GH24NSD1

    Internal AUDIO card

    SOFTWARE

    Free dos

    890€ (ssd 120gb + 1Tb hdd)
    Or 955€ (ssd 250gb + 2tb hdd)

    What is the best? I say the second one
  6. "SSD 120 GB (or 250gb) Kingston V300"

    Neither of those. That particular Kingston is far down the list of what you should purchase.
    I don't know what is available in your area, but look to something else.
