Solved Games on same HDD as OS? Tags: Games Storage Hard Drives Last response: October 13, 2013 5:56 AM in Storage Share RipGroove October 13, 2013 5:27:51 AM Currently I have my OS and Battlefield 3 on a 128GB Samsung SSD, I want to get a few more games so was thinking of getting another SSD and doing the following: Existing 128GB SSD = Windows + Video Editing software + Misc Windows Apps New 256GB SSD = Games So my question is will games run as quick on a separate HDD to the OS or do they need to be on the same HDD as the OS? If the games will be happy on a separate drive that means I won't have to migrate Windows to the larger drive :-) More about : games hdd Best solution ksham a b G Storage October 13, 2013 5:32:43 AM Yes; that setup will work. On a side note: a SSD is not a HDD. Just so you know to not confuse the two. Share RipGroove October 13, 2013 5:33:43 AM ksham said:Yes; that setup will work. On a side note: a SSD is not a HDD.
