    so i plan on using windows for gaming, and maybe some college stuff ( bussiness school has PC programs that i will probably have to use)

    if i plan on using a few apps, plus around 6-7 maybe 8 games installed how much of my harddrive should i give to windows?

    Well, how much have you got to work with? Games take up a bit of space, so I'd aim for 30GB or so if possible.

    Remember you need enough space left over to run the system efficiently too, not just enough space to install the programs.
