Possibly, but I'm not the creative sort, I try to make other peoples ideas work. And the last 2 times, people went "can you not just keep it mostly the same" ;)

Solid State Drives
« on: June 01, 2016, 18:31:02 »
So, you're getting fed up with your traditional HDD speed but don't quite fancy forking out for a top of the line drive.

It seems that Patriot are going to be releasing a budget SSD range called Spark. Sequential R/W speeds are still up around 500MB/s and stupidly cheap, $105 for 512GB. Convert that, add VAT and it comes out to around £90 inc. shipping.

If you don't have an SSD boot drive, this might be a nice addition to your system or a second drive to hold your growing Steam library.

And if you are still worried about volatility and potentially losing data, you could always fork out the extra for a Samsung EVO/Pro or a Hyper-X - Both of those were rated most resilient after petabytes of rewrites.


On a side note, if your motherboard supports NVMe SSDs, have a little google before trying to use it as a boot drive. There are certain options in the BIOS you need to set and afterwards, you might want to see if there's an updated NVMe driver from the drive manufacturer. The Microsoft driver is horrible and sometimes restricts you to 1/4 max speed.
