Default Time to upgrade?

My drive isn't too old, maybe 3 years old. Still runs fast, and the health looks good.

Anyways, when i bought this drive, it cost me like 150 dollars lol, but space has become an issue with it, and i have no idea what to remove from it in order to make space, removing office would kind of suck. Even then, not much space left on my 500gb drive anyways.. might be time to upgrade that as well.

Anways, i'm thinking off upgrading it now, seems like a good time to reinstall windows anyways, prices seem good for a 60gb one.

NCIX.com - Buy OCZ Vertex 3 60GB 2.5IN SATA3 6Gbps Sandforce SF-2281 Solid State Disk Flash Drive SSD - Others - VTX3-25SAT3-60G - in Canada

How does this look?
Asus p6x58d-e / i7 930 @ 4ghz / G.skill 1600mhz 2x3gb 9-9-9-24 / Corsair TX750 / XFX HD 6850 1GB x2 @ 870/1070/ Coolermaster HAF 932 / Noctua nh12-up / Western Digital 500g Caviar black /Western Digital 1TB Caviar black 60Gb/ Seagate 7200.11 500g / OCZ Vertex 3 SSD / Samsung 2253BW / G5 / MX518 /

My System Specs


clean reinstall should do it. I have the same drive, win 7 , office xp, some multimedia apps and still 10GB free space. if software takes too much space install it on a separate drive, use the sdd for boot only
