Samsung 840 PRO for gaming? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
This is probably just me, but I moved all my games to my mechanical drive for two main reasons:

1. To save space on the SSD for personal projects in Photoshop and the like.

2. Because I like to read the information on the loading screens.

It really pisses me off when in BF3 (which is the only game I have on my SSD) there is a loading screen for a game mode I've never played before and it only lasts a few seconds.

As a side note, although SSDs are great, you should always have an HDD for storage as well.

Why do you need a slow spinner drive anywhere in the system?

Nonsense saying you should "always have an hdd for storage.".

Haven't used any spinners in years now and never will again.

I have about 60TB of bluray movies ripped that necessitates the need for HDDs until the prices of SSDs catch up to price to capacity. Now if I was rich enough to afford uber expensive SSDs that are 1TB at least, then of course I wouldn't mind having SSDs for everything. thumb.gif

Even with that i still use HDD with SSD, i can afford 500-1TB SSD, say i can buy 2 Samsung 840 Pro 512 for 1 rig, but i will not use any for files storage, i will use one for OS+apps, and the other either for cache or games or scratch, but another files like videos and musics and photos and downloaded stuff....NO.

I just don't see the point, at all, in spending a ton of money to have ridiculously fast access to my.... pictures? music? Really?
