Question about disk configuration.

Hi, I wanted to ask if this setup for my computer is ok:
1 hard disk 1tb for the operating system and files.
1 hard disk 2tb for backups.
1 hard disk of 4tb for games.
What do you think? I don't want to use a solid disk. The disk for the operating system I am thinking of WD Black.
I await your recommendations. Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards.

Yep, sounds like a nice setup to me. Are you looking for specifics on which models to buy or do you already have some drives?

It will work fine, but not going with an SSD seems strange. I abandoned spinning rust nearly a decade ago now. The only thing using them is my NAS. In this day and age, why the no SSD stance?

for the 1tb hard drive I am thinking of Wd in its Black edition. 2tb hard drives and 4tb hard drives I don't know.
I am open to receiving a recommendation on hard drives, as I said the edition of WD Black because I read on several sides that they were very good, but I am not sure what is claimed.

Because I don't need the advantages that SSD gives.









Thank you both for your answers.
Best regards.

For the 4 TB you might want to consider a Seagate Ironwolf Pro its better in some ways and its way cheaper
Not sure on the 1 and 2 TB but Ironwolf Pro´s might be cheaper there as well
