hi hi

i am in the process of making my pc veri cool and my main issue with my build is my hard drives are running slow and noisy

ever since i replaced my old seagate barracudas with some new seagate barracudas (more storage), my new hard drives just suck

whenever i run a game off of it, it sounds like im popping popcorn

and whenever i try to load up explorer and go to my drive, it takes like 5 seconds to load

 

right now, SSDs are selling for a decent price (albeit still expensive), but i need an SSD that covers enough storage that i'll need (i only play a few games but i store a lot of files)

 

This is the ssd i am considering:

is it worth the price to replace my Hard Drives with an SSD? these drives are insanely expensive so i need to make sure it's rlly worth it

For a cheap solution- Get a small 250GB SSD just to host Windows and your frequently used tools like browsers and IDEs. Put the big stuff like games on the HDDs.

 

Make sure you defrag your HDDs every month

Use an SSD for your windows installation. If you're crazy then go and buy a huge SSD to our everything on for maximum loading speeds. I would install bigger programs like games on the hard drive, sacrificing loading times but increasing your main drive space.

I would not recommend getting a 2TB SSD because of the price, You can easily make a 2TB drive with a raid 0 setup or if your data is important enough, make a raid 1 array. I've reinstalled windows and various Linux distro's because I was impatient and didn't keep a redundant array on hand. 

 

If the SSD will be used for gaming, consider using a large hard drive (6TB-8TB) and pairing it with an intel optane stick. This will dramatically increase the speed of the drive, as the intel optane stick is like a private cache for the hard drive, storing the most used files on a nvme bus.

Intel Optane Cache Drive, 16GB/32GB depending on needs:

These are sold on the 2nd hand market as intel do not make them anymore. They are still sold for a reasonable price, however.

Price watcher's I use for looking at drive prices: 

https://shucks.top/ - Price watcher for LARGE capacity drives. This site is aimed more at data hoarders with setups in the 100's of TB's.

https://diskprices.com/ - A more general price watcher. Only scrapes amazon and its regional sites for prices. Can sort by drive capacity and type.
