I'm looking to get a ssd or hdd which ssd is 128gb and hdd is 1tb, and i really don't need storage because I have a 3tb USB 3.0 storage and I don't use space that much. I usually download 7-12gb a month or 2months. I love being my pc fast but it says wd black hdd is fastest hdd but I'm concerning about both, what should I get?

Ok so an SSD will access files a lot quicker than an HDD and is significantly lighter. Windows will boot very fast on an SSD about 10-15 secs.
However when you store files that are access many times on an ssd, the life of an ssd will decrease. They often have a life of about 10 years when used as a boot drive. However an SSD will not have a lot of the problems HDDs have (for example physical damage won't affect them as much), and they are more reliable than hdds

An SSD that is 128gb will usually be enough as a windows boot drive.

You might want to consider doing a setup where u use an ssd as a boot drive and an internal HDD as file storage. Its easier to manage than an external usb hdd, but its up to you. it can work with an external usb hdd
