Good set up for storage?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I’m looking into getting the new evolv X once it comes out, and I’ve been dabbling in getting storage to fit. Now I’d only be using the three visible 2.5” slots in the back of the case because I honestly don’t need 9 SSDs. I’d be adding VTech covers to match my build. Now my current idea is to have a 500gb boot SSD, 1 TB m.2 game storage, a 1TB SSD for backup and lastly a 4TB SSD for movies. I don’t want any HHD because I want it to be quiet. Thoughts?

 

Thanks!

That's an awful lot of money for storage.

500gb ssd boot drive sounds good

1TB ssd for games is a bit excessive

Just get a 1TB external HDD for backups

Again, just use an external HDD for movies

Ridiculous cost, there won't be an extreme difference between a 250gb or 500gb boot sd, just get a 970 evo samsung m.2 250gb ssd for boot up.

 

Let's say your steam library is 200 gb's, gta v being 70, other games being around 130, you'd only need around 500gb for games. (I have no idea but generally speaking)

 

You certainly don't need an ssd for movies, let alone a 4tb ssd.
