    SSD Purchase Question

    I'm stumped here folks and could use some of your advice/help,

    What would be the wiser investment to do. To purchase an SSD 120gb-ish & 1TB HHD combo now or should I buy the 250GB-ish SSD now and wait 3-4 weeks then purchase the HHD down the road (either option equals out to about the same price for my budget for SSD/HHD). Money was sort of cut back due to bills and hospital expenses, and so those are my options now. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I would get the 250 now, personally. Unless you think you can fill 250gb in 3 weeks. Or just hold off downloading for a few weeks.

    I have all my stuff on my 256 ssd, I just delete movies/shows when i'm done watching them. I have 4-5 games & windows on it and have 112 gb left. If you can manage your stuff not to exceed the 250/256 then you could wait with the HDD purchase if it's needed that is.
