is it ok to get a 60gb ssd

60 GB is not enough for Windows 10 .. every time there's gonna be a few windows updates, the process will use at least 5-10 GB of free disk space to complete, so you'll always have to keep at least 5-10 GB of free disk space, otherwise Windows will not work right ... you will experience hiccups like randomly mouse pausing for half a second, or applications taking a few seconds to start and so on

SSDs also use the free unused space to spread data across various flash memory cells and reduce wear and tear of the memory cells, so it's always best to have at least around 5-10%  (so for a 60 GB drive, that would be at least around 3-6 GB) unused to reduce the wear out of the cheap SSD.

A 60GB SSD will have a lifetime write counter of around 40-50 TB ... if you use it almost full all the time, the maximum amount will probably go down to around 30-40 TB.

 

So after you install Windows on the SSD, you'll only have around 20-30 GB of disk space you could actually use for games or applications ... and these days, that's not enough for a big game that would benefit from using SSDs.

 

so get at least a 120 GB SSD.

 

If you want more performance (faster WIndows startup, launching programs faster) install Windows on the SSD.

thx man ill take ur advice

i desperately need one.....so this is the cheapest option

What's ur budget since 60gb is way to little, for a boot drive only for like 1 console game or some work files

 


Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

What do you plan to do with it? If it's purely, I mean literally only, a boot drive, then yes, that could work. But if you're looking to put anymore stuff in it, you won't really have any more space for bigger files.

I'd say 120GB is BARE minimum..(64GB will be chaos with windows update, as it may get your files deleted)

A 120GB SSD is like 20$

I would say even a 120GB is too small. A 240GB is about £5 more than a 120GB and about £10 more than a 60GB and is well worth it!

Unless you stick with Windows 7 (still a perfectly fine choice for an older pc), you should go with at least 120 GB, ideally 240 GB.

 

120 GB is absolute minimum for Windows ... SSDs with less than 120 GB will basically use bottom of the barrel flash memory chips and will use 1 or 2 flash channels instead of all 4 or 8 the ssd controller supports... so it's like single stick of ram vs using 2 memory sticks in dual channel mode ... the more "channels" the ssd used, the higher the speeds and IOPS... a 60 GB ssd will have shitty speeds and also shitty endurance
