New Build - Need storage advice Tags: Storage Build Build Last response: June 19, 2013 2:11 PM in Storage Share avi8tir June 19, 2013 11:46:33 AM I will be taking my current 512GB Samsung SSD out of my current build and putting it into my new build. In my old build, I also had a 1TB drive for storage. However, I would kind of like to make things more simple... Do I opt for a 1TB Velociraptor and stick to one drive only? I dont really need 1.5TB as in my previous build, so 1TB total would work. thoughts? ideas?

Complicated to set up but very simple to use. Or buy a WD Black 1TB, and use 32GB of the SSD for caching, and use the rest for something else. popatim a c 819 G Storage June 19, 2013 2:11:32 PM Since you already have the 1tb you might as well keep using it. The extra $100 can be put towards a better GPU, backup solution, or something. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
