Get an ssd not a hard drive.

there's no reason to still use a hard drive in 2018

U think so? how many ssds should i get though. 2?

Why would you need multiple ones? Just buy one big one.

Do you recommend any? because my current hard drive is 3 years old and i can feel it's dying already.

For games and editing you do not. Only windows load times amd file tranfers will be faster. Games are not able to harness the super fast speed of nvme ssds. Get a sata 860 pro.

Well when i moved my games to the ssd the pre load of the maps were much faster than the hard driver i was loading before everyone else.

ssd cannot be compared to hdds, they are faster on an entirely new level. Also ssd are less pro to failing or dying and generally have longer lifespans
