If you’re considering purchasing a gaming computer but aren’t sure whether a 1 TB or 2 TB hard drive will be enough, we may be able to help. In this post, we shall discuss some general solutions.
1TB or 2TB for Gaming | Which One is Better?
You can store more games if you have more storage. A AAA game can easily use up to 50 GB of storage space, though sizes vary greatly.
At the other end of the spectrum, Call of Duty: Warzone is almost 130 GB, whereas Super Hexagon, a little independent vector graphics game, is only 32 MB (about 0.03 GB). Even still, when compared to older games, which were measured in kilobytes rather than megabytes, that’s a lot of room. For a typical current AAA game, 50 GB is a cautious estimate.
Aside from that, storage capacity is unimportant for performance as long as you have all of the games you want to install. It depends on how ready you are to uninstall games you aren’t actively playing, which is dependent on the speed of your Internet connection. If you have a fast internet connection and don’t mind waiting 15 minutes for a game to install when you need it, you may not want as much storage space for your “may play sometime” games.
With current storage prices, 1 TB of additional SSD storage capacity costs around $100, however, how that affects the machine’s final price will of course vary. Furthermore, storage is a separate component in your system that has nothing to do with your CPU. If you need more storage, most computers (but not all) make it simple to extend or replace them.
Allowing 100 GB storage for the Windows operating system, basic apps, and some slack space, a 1 TB SSD can hold roughly 18 large-ish games before running out of space. Depending on who you are, that is either a large number of games or a small number.
We hope that our post has assisted you in determining what you should purchase based on your requirements.
