HDD suggestion

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What would be a good 2-4 TB HDD for me to install games and use as storage on it (No SSD suggestion please!)

Im thinking WD black but I don't know if I really need that fancy HDD just to install games on it...

PS: I have a SSD for OS drive

I also have a 2TB WD green that i currently use as storage.

Yes, should still get, thats a good price.

Sata3 isn't as important for hard drives at this time to lets say ssd. If you look specifically for a sata2 drive you'll probably find lower caches/lower capacities due to older designs.
