What size SSD for image processing?

I need some help determining what size SSD to buy with a new MacBook Pro Retina. Apple has recently opened up the SSD choices to 256, 512, and 768GB.

The biggest storage hogs will be PS CS5, LR4, the Nik collection, and MS Office 2011. I'll be storing most of my images off board on a 2TB G-Tech RAID, but some will stay on the SSD. I may expand those modules as the image libraries grow, since I've just taken a chance and bought a D800.

I'd be interested to hear from PC, MB Air and Pro users with SSDs about what their experiences with SSDs of various sizes and such applications as mine has been.

Thanks,
Mike
