Not sure how to set up different storage devices for my needs. HELP

Hi all,

I'm a gamer, mainly, and currently have a 1Tb HDD that is filling up fast. Now I want to do multiple things but I'm not sure what the best set-up is going to be.

1. I want more storage for game installs, and other general program storage needs.
-So I was thinking about 1 or 2 more HDDs at like 2Tbs apiece.
-Also, is it alright to have different sized HDDs??

2. I'd like to get into SSDs, but I only see the advantage of putting an OS on them. So, what else are they good for, and why invest in large SSDs?

3. I want to back-up all my memory. Is this best done with external drives that you just connect like once a week or so? Not sure what the best method for back-up is.

Thanks ahead for any suggestions

    1. Yes, that will work just fine.

    2. SSD. Not just the OS, but applications work well being installed on the SSD. But unless you get a REALLY large one, games won't fit. But gameplay doesn't really benefit from being on the SSD, so it doesn't matter. Put the games on a large HDD.

    3. An external drive for that is a good plan.
  2. Its great you are thinking of backing up what you have!
