    Hey guys, I'm new here, and well I've been thinking about setting up windows on my MacBook Pro using Bootcamp and I was wondering how big I should make the partition. It's pretty much only going to be used for gaming.
    I have 397.72GB free on the 500GB hard drive and I'll be installing Windows 7 Home Premium. I was thinking maybe 100-150GB but I really have no idea.

    Depends on the size of the Games and expansion packs and how many will be simultaneously installed, but I would spitball 100-150GB as being perfect.
