TBF I have a 5400 RPM hard-drive for storage and a SSD for my O.S.

I don't really notice the loading speed for games to be too bothersome.

you responded.

There's a lot of internet tough guys who do nothing but enter topics to tell us that they don't cry over video games, that everyone should just go outside more, get laid, "do you even lift" type bro nonsense, and "ROFL never change" is a classic line since it doesn't really say anything but it's guaranteed to annoy people.

Just smile and nod and move on. You can't talk sense into a stump. You can't reason with a brick wall. etc.


Lol, it took me 5 seconds to type a response.

He would check back every few days to see no one responded. Yet still respond to people posting.

Who really lost here?

Actually don't put the drive model or anything, just put the statement: "I'm a filthy peasant that games on spindles like a cavewoman, hurdur"

For archiving, backups, music/media storage - absolutely nothing.

For anything else - it's terrible; fragmentation, seek times, spindle spin up, transfer limits, vibration and noise, crashing heads, mechanical components that deteriorate, small random file accessing compared to ssd, the list goes on.

For games its fine. Not an issue for the most part. Most games will be fine. Also. I would spend a small fortune trying to buy ssds with enough space for all my games. Literally would cost more than everything else in my computer.
