    Hi,
    Evo ssd's are not all that great
    Pro series is supposed to be a lot better.

    I have 3 evos and they're just fine. Unfortunately SSDs as mentioned above don't on the whole speed up game loading times.

    Hi,
    Even the 850 pro is faster than the 960 evos or at least @AddRAM says :/

    In real world usage, there's virtually no difference. If you're playing the benchmark game using an SSD performance app, you'll see a difference. Real world, not so much.

    And for the record. I've got both a 512gig Samsung 950 Pro NVMe for my OS drive; and a 512gig 850 Pro for my photo drive. Plus a 1 and 2TB Samsung 850 EVO drives. So yeah.... I'm familiar with the Pros. See My Computer

    And the Pro series won't do any better with gaming.

    Later.

    HI,
    Probably not unless on the main drive
    But the evo is a more balanced read/ write where as the pro's usually have a faster read not much though.
    I believe even my old MX100 has a faster read than my 850 evo's

    Hello again. What is a pagefile, mentioned by TairikuOkami above, and where do I find it? Thanks to you all, it looks pretty obvious I place Witcher on the D: drive. Any more info on Witcher and use of hardware/software would be much appreciated. Good night for now.

    Back again, actually Witcher is just another game, so I should have said I look forward to your advice on Computers in the future. I really need it!

    You honestly don't need to worry about a pagefile and would be best served letting Windows manage it.

    The Witcher is obviously a game and you can research it to see what specs it needs. Either way Witcher won't benefit from any pagefile tweaks under Windows 10. No games will.

    People will argue and confuse the issue, but the bottom line is you don't need to mess with a pagefile unless you're having memory issues.

    Hi,
    Yeah ssd's well over provisioning simple means to me don't fill the things past 20% of the entire space of the device
    So I missed how large this ssd is but at 34gb's left usually isn't a good thing

    Page file/ hibernation would really depend on if you cover your bases with a backup battery system or not.
    You loose power and what ever you were working on at the time is lost without hibernation.
    So if your willing to spend some money you might can get rid of the page file
