128GB SSD big enough for Win 10? Solved

    If "that" refers to the 512 GB / 2 TB / 2 TB ...
    The 512 SSD and 2 TB HDD came with the desktop. The add-on 2 TB HDD cost around $70 USD.

    If you're asking about the 32 TB SSD ... there's no such thing today, at least not in the consumer space. That why I said "someday".

    We're getting close,though: Samsung announced a 30 TB SSD in February as documented in this story from The Verge: Samsung unveils world's largest SSD with whopping 30TB of storage. I'm afraid to ask what it costs, though: I'm guessing it will be at least $20K, perhaps more.

    Hi folks
    SSD's good also for things like Photoshop scratch space, any video (particularly) or audio editing / transcoding, paging, swap space.

    These sort of temporary files need to be on the fast as possible device -- doesn't matter if some data from a classical "spinner" takes a bit longer to load it's the processing of that data and the I/O needed for temporary files that need to be as fast as possible. Paging also needs to be on the fastest possible device.

    There's a bit of hoo haa about games here -- if the game itself doesn't have a load of temporary files and is essentially CPU / GPU (Graphics) bound rather than making a lot of I/O then moving the game to the SSD won't necessarily buy you big performance gain -- unless the system is RAM constrained in which case the paging file on the SSD will bear the brunt of the work.

    Personally I'd say a 256 GB SSD is about the minimum decent size -- they are cheap enough now -- use the 128 SSD as extra space for paging / swap / temporary files if you can fit 2 SSD's into your system.

    Sorry to be a bit technical here but an SSD isn't always a panacea for mega performance improvements - especially on faster systems -- you have to know what you are running on your systems and choose accordingly.

    These days though given the price and stability of modern SSD's I'd always choose them over spinners unless you need larger ones (> 2TB) - but costs are coming down all the time.
