Hi guys, how much space will Win10 (OS) take?

After 5+ years of windows updates, saved state rewinds, and temp files, try 40+GB for the OS.

+~10-12GB for a hibernation file.

We also have to factor 8-16GB page file size (by default, page file is typically going to match the RAM size installed.)

New install yesterday took about 33gb for Home 64 bit with default allocations

Around 15Gb.

How about the MS office?

Another 2-3Gb.

I guess, you're trying to see what's the minimum size of a system drive you should have? You can get away with 32Gb, but that will be full before you know it. 64Gb is the comfortable minimum (if you don't clean the crap often enough with CCleaner, you will get it populated easily), but 120Gb will have you covered.

Yes, because I'm planning to purchase SSD first before HDD. However, due to lack of budget, I can only have a 120g SSD so I just want to know if the all the basic or starting systems can put it all on this SSD.

Additional will be 2 games, PUBG (not sure if you know it) and dota 2.

Will have a 1TB HDD soon.
