Primary SSD is full

Hi all,

 

I have a Samsung 970 Pro SSD (Capacity 500GB) and now it is almost completely full.  Most of the software taking up this space is due to games.  I have to keep installing and uninstalling games to make space.  Kinda annoying.

 

Is it advisable to get a SSD to store the steam games?  If so, will there be a performance penalty between SSD Sata and NVME?

 

Will i need to do anything if I just want to migrate the SSD to another PC?  

 

Your kind comments and recommendations will be great.

 

Thank you and regards.

If its a os drive, then just plug it into the other system and you can access all the files(back itup if its important, stuff can go wrong_

Do some research into SSD's and you'll answer your own question and catch up your knowledge level as well.

 

Short answer:  SSD's are for EVERYTHING (as in they may be overkill for certain things, but they don't lack for gaming).  SATA and NVMe have no real world difference for gaming.  I use a boot SSD for Windows/programs, then 2TB of SSD storage for my Steam/other game library.

 

You'll most likely want to reformat the SSD if you move it to another PC as per normal drive usage.
