Choosing SSD for gaming - Page 3

post #21 of 23
It may not be considered the best value but the 950 pro nvme ssd as a boot drive and gaming drive in my opinion is worth it. My win 10 loads in under 5 seconds and games load 3x faster which is noticeable depending on the game if you die quick you load quick. I also upgraded my entire platform though which impacted my reasons. Plus from what I've been told is they retain their value well. I plan on getting a 1tb 960 pro when they release and swap over all my data from my 512gb 950 pro then wipe it clean and sell it.

I recently got an OCZ Trion 150 480gb for a little over $100. Its a good budget SSD.

just a reminder that the total used space on an SSD shouldn't be over 75% of the capacity of the chips.... NOT necessarily the rated capacity... for proper garbage collection and what-not. It won't crawl to a halt, but the performance might suffer a bit.

So, a "250 GB" drive actually has 256 GB of NAND chips on them (still only presented as 250 GB to your system), you want your max usage size to be like 192 GB.

But a 250 GB drive with 250 GB actual chip size (somehow) should only be filled up with 187 GB of stuff.
