Either one would be fine for me, but I would rather have bigger sizes with current speeds.

I can live with 256gb without a hiccup

but I cant feel the difference between a HDD and a SSD and the storage can come in handy hrmm

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

More "slow" (500Mb/s) storage. In 99% of use cases you will not notice the difference. You will notice being able to store more stuff on the SSD instead of a slow HDD.

I speak the honest truth with a bit of snark mixed in. I'm sorry if it doesn't line up with your beliefs.

500MB/s is fast enough for me.

Really? when my 128GB "OK" Adata SSD dies, I'm gonna buy myself a 1GB/s or 1.5Gb/s PCI-E one.

Even though I managed to survive for years with only 300GB of storage space, I'd definitely prefer to have more storage as opposed to faster storage.

what do you do that will actually benefit from the extra speed?

480GB of raid 0 ssd's is plenty for me. The extra 3.25TB of HDD is backups and well, can't even fill up my ssd array

Have you seen how much space a lot of games take up?

 

Better to have more fast storage than less super fast storage, because then you can have all your games that you load up load quickly vs the newer ones super quickly and some older ones super slow because you stuck it on older slower hard drives.

I am impelled not to squeak like a grateful and frightened mouse, but to roar...

SATA doesn't have to wait for a PCIe Controller. Heck I have a V300 and my PC boots in like 7 seconds.
