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

post #21 of 59
1080p movies are what eat my 2TB drives, have a big stack of them. For games you play frequently I'd put them on a moderate sized SSD with your OS. The rest can go on big slow storage drives.

No way 3TB is WAY to small! You will need 10 of 3TB in raid!

Yes, I have 2x2TB for games, fraps, video editor, dvd ripper, and photo editor. 3TB is good enough for games and frap ( records).

The only 3tb out right now has a speed of 5400rpm. Have fun with a slow drive, lol.

3TB is way overkill. 1TB is plenty of space for games and whatever else. You don't even need that.

I don't think a bigger HDD will improve your FPS.... If so then I'll take 8 3TB drives

I think the OP is confused. Maybe an SSD will help with your performance. But generally having a larger HDD will not improve much of anything besides storage.
