My G.Skill shows a capacity of 59.9Gb on a 60Gb drive, so you should see most of the 128, I would think. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

As far as games go, haven't tried a game on this, but your load times should be much shorter.
You hit the nail on the head, Grey.

As for formatted capacity... a lot of it depends on the maker of the drive. 1GB = 1024MB, and HDD makers seldom go by this. They normally call 1,000MB a GB, which is not technically correct. Hence why the formatted capacity is often less than the advertised capacity of the drive. I'd imagine you'd have at least 120GB available for storage throught, probably closer to the 125 - 126GB range is what I'd expect.
