Rum a load test of your app, see how large TempDB gets. Set default size to slightly larger.

I wouldn't call it a "best practice" but here's what I do...

I set it to 100MB with 100MB Growth and then I watch it. Whatever it get's to after a full monthly cycle has passed is probably a pretty accurate size. I'll add half a GB to that and use that for the Initial Size keeping the 100MB growth. Of course, the new intial size won't kick in until the next bounce of the service or reboot of the server. I typically will do the same with the MDF file.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Same thing I do. Other option is to run it for a while and monitor. Then adjust your settings.
