Godamn...Should've gotten the f***ing 1TB Samsung 840 Evo SSD instead of 250 gig

250 gig is too damn small for just games, OS, essential programs, etc. I would use the steam mover but 3 games got f***ed through the transfer and I now have to download a few dozen gigs if I want to play those games again. It's a pain in the ass and it would've been better to just pay more for the 1TB one since I can put everything on it including games as well as pr0n which I have on my regular HDDs.

I added extra words in the topic title so there are more words that people can search who hopefully reads my topic and saves them the trouble of buying a small ass SSD. Go big guys, bigger is always better.

Most games don't really benefit from being on an SSD anyway.

You can have 2 hard drives you know.

You should still buy that 1TB and leave your OS on the SSD and maybe a game or two you play a lot if you have any like that. The bulk of your games can still be installed to the 1TB HD, CPU's are so fast anyway most games dont really need to be on a SSD for fast loading.

Yeah, you're being pretty dumb TC. It's common sense to have an SSD and a big ol' regular hard drive. You don't need everything on the SSD. But if you really want to waste a bunch of money nobody is stopping you.

SSD-only PC is the best.

Do it.

I have the 250gb 840 EVO. Installed on it are the OS, programs and games. It's more than enough, I have over 80gb left, but I do delete games once I'm finished with them or haven't played them in a while.

I also have a 2TB HDD for the rest of my stuff.

I'm on 250gig also, had it since September and I still have 50gb left. You should manage your storages better.
Idk how can you exceed 50-60gb if you don't count the games. You must have a lot of useless programs or you're a very busy man.

Indeed, but look at this the other way:

Try for example getting a large normal usb 2.0 flash drive and copying a game folder to it. I tried this with Grid 2 and it became an incredibly hitchy and stuttery game which was completely unplayable.

It's possible that more minor stuttering here and there can be reduced by using faster disk, but beyond a certain speed, for most games, it don't make any difference.

It certainly makes sense for someone that wants to do everything they can to make their games run the absolute best they possibly can. New graphics cards and processors will only take you so far and won't make an old mechanical hard drive any quicker.
