When I took out my new phone agreement I received a copy of Windows 8 Pro Upgrade free of charge and I am thinking about putting an SSD drive in my three year old desktop PC.

I have a couple of questions before I take the plunge and hope there is some out there who can help:

1) What is the smallest size SSD that I can get away with, all I would install on it would be Windows and MS Office 2010, every thing else would installed on the 500Gb drive already in the PC?

2) As the free Windows 8 version is the Upgrade, will I have to install my original Windows 7 first and then upgrade or is there as in previous upgrades a way for the software to check my original installation disk as proof of an original licensed copy?

Any help would be much appreciated

64GB should work as this is the smallest SSD that comes with the Surface Pro.
