Time To Upgrade?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Not sure how much this is saying but here are my speeds from my current hard drive which seem quite slow. (hitachi hds5c3020ala632). So if anyone has experience with this program or can understand the numbers in general I'm just wanting to know if its time for an upgrade.

I noticed the reading speeds were quite slow once I booted this computer for the first time. Wonder if it would possibly give me any other performance issues, maybe with games perhaps.

HDD are generally slow. An ssd such as the 850 evo would net up to x5 faster speeds in sequential and around 100x faster in 4k speeds.

Best cost conscious upgrade would be to purchase a smaller (~120 gb) SSD to install the OS and some programs; keep the Hitachi as a second HDD to store media (movies, music, pictures) and other files or programs that you do not access frequently.
