Thanks, that's something.

I discovered that there is a ProgramFilesDir registry key where you can change the default location of the Program Files folder, but that changing it is "unsupported" and can apparently cause Microsoft apps like IE and WMP as well as some Windows Updates to fail.

It looks like a 64GB SSD will be too small for Windows 7 Ultimate and whatever goes to those default locations that can't be (or can but shouldn't be lol) changed: appdata, programdata, program files, /Users, and a few apps.

Minimum 128GB it is then. Any recommendations? The Crucial M4 seems to be a good buy. Meh, by the time I can afford an M4 something better will be available!

/EDIT

OK so there is a neat way to override the C:\Users default:

It would be cool if there was a way to modify the Windows installation files so that D:\Users was the default already during installation.
