    guys I need help I'm currently building my PC and all in need is my hard drive I can buy a 120gb SSD for around £50 or a 1tb HDD for about £40, was planning on getting a small SSD for the OS (and drivers) and a HDD for software but looking at the price difference I'm not sure anymore. Is the price difference worth it, will it impact performance?

    If you're on a budget, I'd go with the HDD and then add an SSD later when you can afford it. Installing the OS on an SSD will make it a hell of a lot faster but you get very little space on them.

    I was looking into almost exactly the same thing the other day, for exporting I wanted something to speed up the process and was looking at an SSD but space is also quite a priority and to get the same kind of 1T as the current HDD you're looking at a fair whack in price. So if you need speed over space at the moment an in budget SSD looked right but I'd echo what Fury said and go with saving for one, probably what I'm thinking myself at the moment!
