Depends on how many games you want to have on it. I have a decent Steam library and like having at least 10-15 games installed at once. This is why I got myself a WD Black 6TB disk to go alongside the 1TB SSD I have for my "favorite" games.聽

If you only have 4-5 games installed at a time, then 1TB will be enough. If you like having more, then a 2TB SSD might be more suitable.聽

what does your game library look like?

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney聽|聽Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products聽I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD,聽Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I聽hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past聽the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies聽I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built聽like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had聽good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's聽relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Depends on if you care about your budget and the convenience.

2TB drives are quite more expensive than buying 2 separate 1TB drives, it's because of ask and demand. I would say you are fine with 1TB, but it depends on what games you play. We all know the infamous COD:Warzone for example, so it depends a lot.

Mate, i just bought a 1tb wd black sn750 pci-e gen 3.0 for my steam drive. It reads and writes at just over 3 gb per second ( 3400mbps read, 3000 mbps write). It comes with a 5 year warranty. It only cost me 拢115 here in the uk. Thats about $159. It seems to be a good drive for the money.
