For playing games, it's better to use SSD or even smaller (and perhaps faster) HDD. Those 10TB class HDD's are generally optimized for data storage, especially disks that are meant for NAS systems.

Your questions...present two posisbly conflicting focus areas.


If your primary concern is storage space capability...then that will be in conflict with the fastest drives.


The fastest drives, hands down, are SSDs.


The drives with the largest storage capacity...will not be SSDs.


Generally...no one yet buys SSDs to use for enormous storage...the cost, when compared to the cost of Seagate/WD drives with multi-TB capacities...is more than many of us would ever spend for storage drives.


Example 1


Example 2

There are a lot of pros and cons to those kinds of drives, and really if the only thing you are going to do with them is game storage then you really dont need that kind of room.

anything over 4GB is more for servers and other mass storage solutions and not really for storing games.

Unless you want to install every game known to mankind there is little need for over 4GB of storage.

You may be better off with two drives instead of one, if space is an issue you can just load another drive if your machine can take it.

You know you want me baby!
