SSD + HDD or Hybrid?

Hello humans,

 

Many people have regular disk drives in their computers, others have SSDs AND HDDs (woah!).  I was wondering if I should stick with a 7200rpm hard drive or add an SSD or go with a hybrid.  I personally am not a huge crap giver about noise, just performance, but it would be cool/nice to have a quiet but fast computer.

Any help will be appreciated, Thank you!

SSD+HDD. Much more consistent performance.

always go HDD+SSD

 

only do hybrid if its for a laptop with only one drive spot and you cant afford a large SSD (or cant live with a small SSD)
