Get a bigger SSD, 120 gig for your os, programs and games..
Budget will hit it if you drop down from a 2600k to a 2500k, shouldn't see a difference between these chips in game.

I stand corrected.
Yes your pretty much on glue stating W7 needs 80 GB for install....I've got 80GB SSD's on both this desktop and my Notebook and that is just fine for a Boot Disc...no need to go more!!

What you do is get a cheap 80GB Boot disc and then put all your games on either a WD Black Drive or another 120 - 240 GB SSD.
