Yeah that will be nice. Are you putting FSX on the ssd? If you aren't and you're just buying one only for the OS you could easily go down to a 64-128 GB. If you're putting the OS and FSX on that 256... and you have payware... I'd try to spring for a 512 or 480 instead. I've got a 120GB for FSX only and it's almost completely full. I don't have any photo terrain.
