256GB SSD is too big along side 1tbHDD, won't I save some money If I go for 120- 128GB SSD instead...? I just want a taste of the fast read and write capabilities of an SSD.
Yes, you'll save a decent amount by going with a lower GB SSD. I plan on getting a HDD still at some point, sell my 1TB 3.5" WD and get a 1TB 2.5" WD just to save space and plus it mounts easier in more places. xD
