Best Anniversary Sale 2024

So as we all know, nowadays everything is advancing and so many things have changed over the last 5-10 years. Let’s just take a moment and remember what types of games we used to play on our PC or console in the year 2000 and now look how far these gaming companies have come to improve our gaming experience. I remember my first PC, it was 2007 and my PC’s specs were:-

Hard Disk:- 160GB
RAM:-  500MB
Graphics Card:-  64MB (yes you read it correctly)

The games are getting better day by day and their size is increasing too. I am sure many of you guys have faced problems in playing latest games on your PC or console.

Sometimes your PC doesn’t meet the requirements which are needed by the game or sometimes the Storage level of your Hard Drive is low, so if you even downloaded the game properly, without the proper space needed by your PC or console the game may lag and you will not have the best gaming experience.

See the latest games like God of War or Halo can take up to 100GB of your hard drive. And most of the times we don’t have this much space on our PC or Console.

So today we will be talking about the best hard drive you can install in your PC or Console for gaming.

Buying a new PC or console can be very expensive and most of us cannot afford to pay like $700-$2000 just for gaming. So by installing the new hard drive on your existing PC or Console, you are saving a lot of money. You will also get the best gaming experience possible so we all can see how this might be a smart choice.

Now there are a few questions you need to answer before buying a hard disk.

Does the speed of Hard Drive really matter?

If you are playing a single player mode then yes the speed matters big time. Nobody likes when the loading screen comes up and do not go away very quickly. Eg:- GTA 5, this game takes a lot of time in loading, so with a faster hard drive the loading will be faster and you can enjoy your games at maximum level.

But if you are the kinda guy who likes to challenge other players. Then you won’t have any issue with the speed because in multiplayer games everyone loads at the same time so it doesn’t really matter if you have a faster drive or a little slower.

But if the speed is really all you then you should try the SSD.

What’s best for me in the hard disk store (Space Needed)

So there are different types of gamers out there and everybody has their own choice of gaming. Now if you are a casual gamer and like playing games but you do not play more than one or two at a time. Like if you only have FIFA 18 and Fortnite on your PC or console then you don’t need a big hard drive eg: 4TB. You can easily use 1TB for PC and 500GB on your consoles like PlayStation, Xbox etc.

But if you are a true gamer and like to play different games of different genres, and want your experience to be absolutely flawless and superb. Then you should definitely go for 2TB and above for PC and 1TB and above for your Console.

Solid State Drive (SSD)?

Solid State Drive is made for speed. If you guys want speed on your PC then choose SSD because our traditional Hard Drive cannot beat SSD in the matter of raw speed. SSD provides faster Loading times and faster in-game texture streaming.

Size of Hard Drive

So there is usually two sizes of the hard drive.

3.5 and 2.5, now the 3.5 inches hard drive is our standard Hard Drive and 2.5 inches hard drive is our slimmer hard drive.

So 2.5 is a little expensive than 3.5. So 3.5 is usually for PC and 2.5 for laptops. 3.5 is a little faster than 2.5 in performance but it’s hardly noticeable.

So now comes the main question. Which hard disk to buy?

We have gathered the top 5 Hard Disk to buy for your PC and Console. So here we are going to tell you the names of these drives but if you want full information, you can check out this link and you can also buy the Hard Disks from this link.
