    I have a 250 GB Macbook Pro and I am going to install Vista 64 bit on it via Boot Camp. The main reason for this is to play games (Crysis, Orange Box, Age of Conan, etc.) I was just wondering how big I should make the partition. How much space will Vista, the drivers/updates, and SP1, take on my harddrive. How much room should I leave for my games?

    I'd recommend at least 25GB and you might want to shoot for 30-35GB.

    I would recommend at least 75-80. You'll be surprised at how quickly it fills up (unless you uninstall a game after playing it.

    With the standard 32Gb allocation, and Vista 64 (after it's done all the updates) and Crysis, you won't have much space left, as that's exactly what I had recently. You might want more space, or uninstall the games you're not playing ;)
