Yeah I like to keep 20% free. I consider 15% to be the minimum I personally would feel comfortable with. I usually just make the partition 20% smaller that way I dont 'forget' (aka poor mans Over-Provisioning...as if you cant see it...you cant USE it).

If you had a new rig I would say just get two smaller 256 and RAID them (RST passes trim in RAID now)....since that is not an option....Get two. Make one the OS drive and app drive. The other for games. Could probably get away with a 128 and 256 that way...but remember the 128s are slighly slower than the 256'ers. ;)
