I have a 500GB drive that’s about full and am planning to get another drive. I’m staying around the $100-$120 mark for cost which can get me a 1TB traditional hard drive or a 120GB solid state drive. My use is about evenly split between internet browsing and game playing (almost always single player).
My initial plan was to put my Steam (games) folder onto the new drive which would let me download and store a lot more games rather than needing to regularly pick installed games to cull and install new games in their stead. Obviously, having 8x the storage over the SSD would work there.
I’ve heard people go on about how great SSD drives are though and the speed benefits. I rarely shut down my computer so the 15 second boot time doesn’t mean much to me (but maybe I’d shut it down more if it was more convenient to boot it up) but the access speeds might be of benefit. Or not. I’ve never used a SSD so I have no idea. In my position, which route would you go? Are the benefits of a SSD worth giving up the extra storage?
