Hey, I need help about my drive configuration. I'm buidling new pc for creativity and gaming, my question is:
Is there any problem with:
1x Samsung 970 evo plus nvme m.2 500gb
1x Samsung 860 evo ssd sata3 500gb
1x HDD WD Blue 1tb
Or should i replace samsung 860 evo ssd with another m.2 250gb but another brand. Will 2 different m.2 brands work?
I'm planning to install my Windows 10 64bit in ssd or m.2 250gb
Work in progress, rendering in 970 evo plus 500gb / games
Completed projects and files in hdd 1tb
Can someone help me or explain the best way to put this thing or some other suggestion.
Thank you so much

No problems whatsoever as I see it.
You really kill blackbirds with cannons with such a setup ;)

Your own suggestion is in my world a plain waste of money, but I know that some people cant get it high enough. They will have to pay for it though :D
 
I would favor a single m.2 1tb drive for everything.
A single space is easier to manage and there is no performance difference.
Use a 970 evo if you can, but a 860 evo will still m.2 perform well.
Samsung evo is as good as it gets for performance and reliability.

Consider a 1tb intel 660p instead of the HDD. the price is very reasonable.

So, I can go with 1tb m.2 for everything because its the same price as these three. But i was prefering hdd because I can't lose any of my work, thats the reason going for hdd. But If u say I can go just with 1tb m.2 for everthing i should then. But any other suggestion would be good. Thank you so much
