New Here storage question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi New here and going on my first gaming build.

mobo: Asus Z170 pro gaming

CPU: i5 6600k

GPU: nvidia 970 (Gigibyte gaming 1)

Crucial ddr4 raqm (2 X 4) 8gb

PSU: Corsair cm650 80+ gold

Cooler: NZXT x61

Case NZXT s340

My question is should I get an M.2 ssd 120 gb for the OS and use a samsung evo 120gb ssd for storage. Or am I better with just one type of ssd?

I am not a heavy user just running windows and a couple of games. WoW almost exclusively. I use a laptop for browsing etc and storage so the desktop is strictly for gaming.

All opinions greatly appreciated.

meh, don"t take 2 different SSDs.
IMHO don't even buy a SSD, get a HDD and save/use the money for a better quality component (ex: cooler/PSU/Case)

If you don't have either I would buy a 250ish GB SSD for both and then you can add a HDD for high capacity storage later.

EDIT: This SATA SSD is pretty cheap atm and IMO would suit your needs, providing quick boot and load speeds
