    Is Windows 8.1 good enough to deserve half of my 500GB SSD? I have no idea if I should give it 200 or split 50/50. What do you think? Other than gaming, is it a nice system to share OS X time while on the Mac?

    It depends on what you want to do with Windows. Do you know what you want to do with it and how much storage it might take up? Just for dabbling in Windows, 64 GB might more than suffice or even running Windows as VM.

    I have 400GB free on my SSD. I plan on doing some gamming, though I have 1TB external drive (7200rpm) dedicated to Steam. I really have no idea of how much space I need... The inicial plan was to run Windows 8.1 and a few Open World games on the SSD.. In the end no matter where the SSD space goes, it will go to waste.
