How is this rig? - Page 4

post #31 of 84
Just get one when you can. Make sure to install your OS and programs on it for the best overall improvement.

A 120gb ssd is enough to store your OS/programs on with 60gb left over.

A 250gb ssd is enough to store your OS/programs on with 190gb left over.

A 500gb ssd is enough to store your OS/programs on with 440gb left over.


Redirect all of your larger files to a hdd. Install junk games on the hdd also. I've got a 256gb ssd for OS/programs/some games, a 500gb ssd for games, and then 2 1tb hdd, one for games and one for data. Works out well.

Good ideas, let me buy one and try of all them, i wonder oh my progra...OH WAIT.
sorry, i dont casually go buy relatively high priced technology especially computer stuff if i'm not fully convinced it will provide me the optimal and expected results for the needs i have.

SSDs are on another level, HDD is fine as long as you're used to it, but if you can get a SSD for the OS and programs and some games then it's night and day.
Also I think running 1TB WD Black for the OS is a better idea than those storage drives. I've got two HDDs, both 7200rpm, but rather storage ones not performance oriented, and head parking is the most friggin annyoing thing I've got in this rig. I'd swap them both, 1TB + 3TB, for 2TB WD Black with no hesitation. It just depends on your preferences. I mean they are both fine in terms of read/write speeds, especially the toshiba 3TB one (avg. over 160MB/s in HD Tune read test) but that head parking is just about the most irritating thing you can have on a hard drive. I'm this close to selling them both either for a Ultrastar.

Having an SSD will load games faster. But your in-game experience will also be improved. The numbers don’t lie.

As you move through the virtual world, the game is making guesses as to where you’ll navigate next. It has some information, like an overall map of the level, or where the next turn might be on a virtual race course. So it will stream in assets – textures, model data, level-of-detail information and sound files – ahead of time.
If the game guesses wrong, however, it has to reload the new data.

This chart shows pointers to the peaks of high disk activity. Every time this would happen, the scene would briefly freeze – only for a moment, but enough to be jarring.

Same thing I've noticed in some open world games moving from hdd to ssd.


Outside of that, good luck to you. Can lead a horse to water, but, can't make it drink.

Here's your real world performance, guess which transfer is to an SSD and which one is to an HDD. If you can't figure it out after everyone has explained all of this to you, then i just can't waste my time with you anymore. Don't feed the troll guys.

Rhey must be old then, i dont recall 'recent' (2009+) 'storage' drives (WD green, red) to be 7200 RPM, except maybe the some models of the dreaded seagate company .

Edit : i finished writing when tou already had posted i guess, well :

yes, i dont know about other scenarios but i obviously know file transfer is obvisoulsy better, sayings still not program-related
Side note : Is that it, you simply get offended and call me a 'troll', when i point out questions you dont want/know the answers ? Tell me about it, i was also welcomed that way in the first threads i interacted this way with, just check.

and there are other drives apart from WD. Both my seagate and toshiba are 7200 rpm storage drives. If you dread seagate then it's fine, I've got 160GB and 250GB from 2006 still running.

Not sure you understand. Once you see how SSD work on a system, you will understand. It is not about just loading windows.
If you are going to give advice here, I suggest you learn about what you are saying
All my games are my SSD, which makes a big difference. Not in FPS gains, just overall performance in loading, rendering and maintaining a more steady FPS.

Here is the best examples

I am not knowleadgeable about the other brands so i dont talk about them, though my hypothesis was right as i see.
