If you are trying to shave $$ you can get a smaller SSD. Unless you install a lot of games and play them all at once, you don't need more than 150GB. I have 240 I think and have a lot of room left with probably 5+ games installed that I'm not playing.

I didn't bother putting a platter in my new computer. Instead I just have a large NAS drive that all my computers can share.



I have a 120 ssd and find it too small, so i need the platter drive for excess game overflow, which I might avoid if I had a 240 ssd. For everything else, I use my nas drive same as you.

if you use steam at all say bye bye to SSD space with the cursed sales. I had a 120 and was constantly having to manage it I went up to a 240 and have to manage way less I have a few AAA titles loaded with no worries and I have a 500 gig WD black for games that don't matter so much and a 3 TB WD Green for media.

You guys do know you can uninstall games right? Unless you have kids I doubt you are actively playing 10+ games at a time.

Last machine I built (~7 years ago) kept freezing because the memory and MoBo didn't get along. I fiddled with timing a ton, which would alter the timing of freezes and BSOD's but never fixed them. I eventually returned the RAM and got a different brand that worked on first install. Technical specs were identical between the brands...

Look at the QVL(qualified vendor list) for your motherboard... best to go with one of those. (should be on the manufacturer website)
