Is 3tb hdd enough for pc gaming? - Page 2

post #11 of 59
Yep, 3TB is enough.

4 doesn't exist unless you raid 2x2TB

3TB drives also normally have crappy performace, get something smaller and faster. I throw my games on either velociraptor or my ssd.
I hate waiting for games to laed textures etc.

I have 2 TB of movies, but I could never imagine 3 tb of games... that is more than enough
post #15 of 59
Hmm, well I have a 250gig for my games, although I do run out of space (my 2tb is for movies and music). I think 500gig would be perfect for a gamer.

i got 1 tb and is not enough between games installed and images to not have to use the dvd's. also gameplays, if you have resolutions like 1920x1080, fraps will record 2 gb per 3-4 mins

lol 3tb...really? I sure hope its enough as mines only 500GB. Have over 50 games and lots of other stuff on it. Still have over 200GB of space.
post #18 of 59
500Gb Samsung Spinpoint or Western Digital Black would be perfect. You have no idea how frustrating it is to have to decide between three games I can have at one given time due to space constraints
