  • Is an SSD worth it for gaming?

    Finally, I am successfully enrolled in University and I am looking forward to buying new PC and I have few questions about it which are making me more to think.

    Question:
    Whether I should get an SSD(500 GB) or I should move over to the HDD. I am regular into playing games like CS GO, PUBG and Civ 5. But In addition to that, I have one more requirement, I will be using my Personal Computer for creating my own games in the unreal engine for my gaming course.

    I asked an expert and he recommended (Seagate PS4 Hard Drive) - $100 extra price tag for the increased SSD to make sure that everything runs smoothly.

    What I am Currently Using :
    I am currently using 328gb out of 1.81TB (2.00TB total) of storage on my HD at the moment

    I am able to buy storage later on in the year when I have more money, but what I should buy as of this moment that will be best.

    Any Help From you guys is highly appreciable.

    Absolutely. It cuts down on install and loading times.

    I have a 240GB SSD as OS drive, 512GB SSD for games. All backups, videos, edits, audio, etc. can go on HDD.

    SSD’s are so cheap now and are completely worth it. Samsung Evo’s are great. Cant go wrong.

        Defragging is completey safe to run on SSD.
        Terabytes of data can be written and removed
        Very rare SSD has failure.

        I have been using SSD's since 2010 with no issues.

          I'd go for 1 TB of SSD against 4 TB HDD any day of the month. Take a look at Crucial MX500 from this list. It's what I'm currently rocking and the load times are way faster than before. Although, I still may get a huge HDD for storage space
