But you'd better get a SSD if performance is what you aim for. Edit: Now most people will get a 256GB SSD for their OS and Software, and a secondary 1TB Black for the Data (Pics, Music, Movies, etc...). A solid combination would be: 1 x Samsung 840 "Evo" 250 GB 1 x WD 1TB Black Very good bang for the bucks too. m 0 l joaogop August 22, 2013 4:48:54 PM MC_K7 said:The first one of course.

Do you think that it is worth getting 2x REDs for video editing and gaming? Is it a lot faster than a single 1TB Black? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
