Switching from 'unlimited' to 10gb per month?

Having for a couple of years had 'unlimited' downloads', am now thinking of switching Internet Providers.
The offer I'm looking at gives a maximum of 10GB per month.
Is this enough?
I send or receive on average about 10 e-mails per day.
Download or look at approx 50 y-tube video's per week (say about 1 or 2 minutes duration),plus I'm a member of a couple of forums (Like PC Adviser), and respond to threads with about,say 15/20 posts a day.
Am I likely to run out of GB?

Thank You

you can always ask your current provider what your monthly usage has been over say 6 months which i did before moving to a lower package

What you are using the internet for at present is a very long way short of 10GB but what of the future?

I've been trying out Thinkbroadband's tbb meter. It will record your bb usage over a month as well as your 'sending and receiving' from the internet in real time. It only does this from one PC but can give you a good idea of usage.

Thanks for your reply guys.
Will try all of the advice.
Pine Man, I will make sure that the new provider has the facility to upgrade.

Thanks again
