So, I'm building myself my first gaming rig and I've been wondering about the hard drive. Would it be disadvantageous to use an external hard drive? Like have an external 2-3TB hard drive outside the desktop but also have like a 256GB SSD inside? would that work? It may be a stupid question but I was just starting to wonder if that would work.
It wouldnt be a bad choice, but I would say that internal HDD and an SSD is the better choice. Internal drives are faster for the most part, and its also safer and gives faster data transfer. A 1-2TB hdd with a 128-256 SDD depending on price is what I would recommend.
