Hi, I have recently installed a solid state drive in my PC.
120GB... to run windows and my photo editing programs faster.... and maybe a couple games (if I can figure out how to run Steam on a slave and a Steam game on the main.. different topic).

My question is this...

I have Windows Ultimate 64 bit... but I want to make sure I have a lot of extra room on this drive for other programs.
If I were to buy Windows 7 Home Basic 64.... would it be a smaller footprint on my hard drive? Or is it the same size, but less features unlocked ?

I have Googled the best windows install for SSDs but nothing helped me much.

My goal is to have as much leftover drive space on the 120GB SSD as I can... even at the cost of a smaller OS.

Thank you for any and all advice.
