If the drive is new with no existing partitions, you'll be able to specify the size of your system partition during the install. I'd suggest select a size adequate for all you wish to install onto the system, (perhaps 32GB?) but avoid simply accepting to use the entire drive. Limiting the size of the system volume makes cleanup/mainenance and backup much simpler. Once Windows is installed you can create however many data partitions you want from the remainder of the drive, either one 700+ volume or more smaller ones. Again, several partitions can help with organising & backing up your data, at the expense of slightly more complex drive arrangements during saving, searching etc.
