    is that enough for a boot drive and a 2tb as a data drive ?

    all that is going to be installed on SSD is osx, wow, office 2k11, maybe down the road adobe suite and maybe fcs (thats a big maybe)

    Look at the system requirements. Adobe Suite, Master Collection (i.e everything) is 26.3 GB. Snow Leopard is around ~6. FCP Studio is 4, + 46 with the extra stuff. Wow is 25. Office is 1.1 GB.

    Yes, 120 is fine.

    You can install apps to the HD as well in case you run out of space. Big apps like CS5 are fine on HD if they aren't used very often

    Using a 80 and still have approximately 30 gigs left over.

    120 gig, you really won't use it all with that huge HDD as a second drive.:)
