1TB SSD (OEM) or 2TB HDD black?

If i'm buying the SSD it will be the OEM version but i guess Samsung will have the driver support for it.

This is for games btw. I already have my OS installed on a 128GB SSD.

SSD.


I'm concerned about the space though.

At the moment my current HDD has 15GB used so i can go with the 1TB. But long term i just don't know what i can expect from upcoming games which will be much larger.

1TB SSD? Yes please

And perhaps you want a storage HDD, for you to store your data. Green will do, no need Black if it is for that purpose. Don't store any games on it though.

I already have a 2TB WD Red HDD, is that viable for data storage?

Reds optimised for NAS and are not much better than WD Green. Tons of reviews about this. If its just storage as a 2nd drive, WD blue would do just fine. If your gaming black would be the better HDD

Green/Red is fine for storage.
