SSD for sure.

I have a 2tb SSD, and it was worth it!

SSD for OS and programs I constantly use. OS boot is so beautiful and even for some games the load time is beautiful. I use HDD for pretty much everything else and games where load times are already fast and putting it on a SSD is just pure overkill.

Saving up for a triple HD set. Going to get a 256gb for the OS, 2 tb SSD for game storage, and a 8 gb HDD for general storage to pair with my 2tb HDD (that I already own) which I will then use for virtual disk space allocation (along with having all that extra storage space).

HDD's are insanely cheap compared to SSD's, so an SSD is definitely a luxury accessory to own for your build. This is why it is last on my list of improvements, but I am definitely looking at obtaining it for the final touches of speed that it can offer.

WIll be going with the EVO series, as well. Always been able to rely on Samsung.

I prefer SSHD. I bought this when it first came out. $120 ? It's $90 now. I installed this in my PS4.


SSD ? 1TB for $330 ? really ? If you want one try grabbing them when they are on sale during black Friday

I have the same SSHD installed in my PS4. The price was $120 when it first came out, they inflated it to $130-$140 within the first 4-8 weeks due to high demand (it was the #1 hdd top seller on Amazon). I got the drive for $100 using Citi Price rewind. It only has 8GB of SSD instead of 16-32GB of the older SSHD. It is fast for games where you have to load alot (Bloodborne).

I got a 960GB SSD for $100 last Black Friday. I sold it for $160 a few weeks later (didn't think 960GB is enough storage). I downloaded 900GB+ worth of games from the PS store when i installed the 2TB. I'll buy multiple SSD again if they have them around $100 but will just resell them for some profits-- to buy something else.

You havent even mentioned the best SSD option, the PCI-E SSD.

Which is totally the best option, The new NVME ssds are insanely good as well
but i have a small PCIE ssd for my os, Regular SSD's for my commonly played game, everything else in HDD's.

I use a 250gig samsun 850 evo for my OS
and a 2 TB Seagate for everything else.
lightning fast start ups with extreme amounts of space, and altogether I only paid about $150 to $175

I am going with SSD. As you post Samsung 850 EVO I am using this and the best thing in it is read-write speed is stellar which is very useful but let you know I will also prefer Samsung 960 Pro which is also best SSD for gaming and also cheap than 850 and Super-fast when dealing in large files.
