Hey Guys,
I was wondering if my 250g Samsung Evo SSD would be enough for my gaming pc. Is it recommended that I get a hard drive as well as the SSD? or is the SSD fine for just gaming?

250GB is not large enough, if it is the only drive.
Once you include some DLC, some games are coming in at 100GB or so.
That 250 won't go far.

Yes, you also need a large spinning drive to go with that.
 


SOme games can exceed 50GB. That makes a 250GB drive seem relatively small. I'd invest an extra $50 for a WD Blue 1 TB 7200 RPM drive.

Hardware does fail. Putting all your eggs in that one basket can be very bad news.
