I paid $329 for a 970 Evo plus a while back I'm still pretty happy with that

i think that by the time we need to replace the ssd is either the bigger size is cheaper, faster. or we have a new pc. not because it is dead/worn out.

so as long as the drive is cheap and fast, and can last till we change pc, it is good enough.

at the moment, 1tb is good, and adata is asking 185 all in..... mine xpg 1tb, speed is ok, slower than advertised, i do not feel it is slow, feel no difference than my evo 960, my crucial mx500. BUT it is VERY COOL, like 28 degree when using windows/chrome, etc. go upto 45C when doing benchmark.... it came with heatsink, heatsink fits lenovo Y730 no issues.

anyway, samsung drive is better.

I paid almost double for this drive. I have 2 M.2 Slots, might as well fill the second one. I'm waiting for Black Friday for parts. At this rate, SSD's and DDR4 might be at all time lows with the recession hitting. I'm sitting on cash waiting for deals.

If I'm only using the PC for gaming is there a point in buying a high performance SSD, or just buy whatever is the best price per GB at the time?

Bought this for my kids computer, very pleased with it. Had a Crucial MX300 before and it had some weird issues where the computer would stutter under disk activity, no issues with the 970 Evo Plus.

If you're strictly gaming and like myself play 1-2 games at a time (as in uninstall once you finish with them), you can really get away with even a 256gb drive even today. With prices of these drives as low as they are, I would just get a 512gb for gaming purposes. 1TB just because if you want to -a tad overkill really if you delete the games and just have Steam/EPIC/Origin etc installed.

Im saying this because my previous main computer which I just updated had a 256gb SSD, and I always kept it clean and tidy around 150gb remaining after Windows 10 install, launchers. 1-2 games would drop that to 100-130gb remaining. Never had an issue.

I would say get a 512gb just for the extra breathing room, put the rest to a GPU or CPU.

Also, I would get the SX8200pro 512gb for around 109.99 taxes included when ADATA is back in stock. Cheaper with on par performance then the Samsung Evo 970 Plus (144.99 + tax)
