    I'm getting a 120GB HDD soon for my MB with BootCamp, and I plan on putting a few games on it, and maybe AutoCad. You think 20GB's should be enough? I want to have maximum space on the Mac side.

    If you're planning on installing games for Windows then 20GB is probably not enough.

    However if not then it depends what you plan on having in Windows. I have a 20GB partition there and I have Word, Corel Painter IX.5 and Macromedia Studio 8 installed with still about 13GB free. Hope that helps as a guide.

    Hmm do games really take up that much space? I'll have to look into how much they are, thanks for the repsonse.
