Which is worth getting? Samsung 860 EVO 250GB (79.99 or 90.39 w/ tax) or 500GB (119.99 or $135.59 w/ tax)

The SSD is going to be my boot drive, important applications and will be planning to put a couple of games that I mostly play like CS:GO, maybe even GTAV if there is enough space for it

I'll also have a Secondary Drive which is a Seagate HDD (1TB)

Please, let me know peeps just right before Thursday, since the sale price of the SSD will end on Thursday midnight! Thank you!

500GB much better value for the capacity

 

Eventually you'll fill that extra space up, no worries.

+1 to 500GB, especially since games are getting larger and larger these days.
