SSD - samsung 980 pro just only for the system?

Hello guys,

 

What do I think about buying a samsung 980 pro 250 gb for the system/some necessary programs and samsung 970 evo plus just only for games? Its even worth pay more for faster ssd for system? I will even feel any difference? 

Right now i have i7 10700k (gonna upgrade asap for rocket lake) and mobo msi z490 gaming edge so right now i wont have any benefits from pcie 4.0 but in the future? Also i have right now 1 ssd on sata 250 gb and hdd 2tb.

Okay so if you have the money a ssd for games would be nice but games tend to be large so I would just go for HDD it is a big difference but I can wait

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

um, ryzen zen 3 is better than intel, take the amd path, otherwise, in games, gen 4 is useless, but putting on it the os, the boot times can half or evenn more

You'll feel a difference in game load times and maybe higher FPS and reduced frame drops, though I'm not sure how applicable the latter two are. Those just seem to be rumors to me. Why are you upgrading from 10th gen already anyways?

Well in the future 256gb will not be enough, so you might wanna get a larger one if you want a long term use. at least 500gb.

As proven before between a decent sata drive (lets take a mx500) and one of the fastest nvme drives (lets take a 970 pro here) there is for games basically not a single difference what so ever in anything. MAYBE if lucky you save a second on loading a big game like gta V or something but really there is simply no difference generally. So just get a cheaper bigger drive and call it a day. Same for windows your boottime will be lower by a couple seconds at most but in general use there is not a single difference what so ever. Not worth it getting a 250gb drive instead of almost a 1tb ssd when going with a cheaper option

A Gen 4 250GB SSD is the fastest.........way to fill up a small drive.

Spend less money on a larger Gen 3.

As the owner of more than 10 Gen 4 drives, it's not a big deal for gaming.

Now if you were constantly moving large sets of data like I am, that's a different story.

 

 

Also, you already have a system. Ignore people telling you to replace it with Ryzen.... 🙄
