Do I need to use ssd to store my game? of course, include dcsw :P


Recommended Posts

Hi bros,

Just like the title said, that's my question...

You guys must know the coming map NTTR is nearly 30gb to be storaged from wags' video said, and our dcs client is much bigger then before.

And I also play AA2 & 3, however mostly is AA2. I find the mod few days ago, called AllinArma that can let me play full AA2 by new rendering engine, that mod is almost 20gb with high quality texture...

So I want to know do I need an 100/200 gb ssd to store our open-world simulator/game?

(I just think open world game need to loading more objects than the other type games at the same time.)

However ssd is much expensive then HHD on average GB cost. :cry:

 

:PThanks for your advice first. :thumbup:

Yes make room on your SSD or upgrade to a bigger one, DCS is worth its storage space.

 

BTW Arma rocks ;)

SSD's are worth every penny. My laptop has two SSDs and no mechanical hard drive (my changes not factory). I would never go back.

 

Yes, DCS should be on an SSD.

It only affects game load times, not actual game performance.

 

OS load time and reduces slow down when using swap file.

 

Since games are so huge load times are so slow ssd is a must, SSDs currently work best crunching big files rather than lots of tiny ones.

 

IMHO - Make the computer fast + enough ram before SSD.

 

Samsung 840 evo drives are good. 500gb ssd are becoming within reasonable price ranges.

I agree 101%!

 

I just got 16gb of Hyperx Savage RAM and DCS now uses much more memory than when I had 8g just because its available. It used 4g and it now uses 7g.

 

Build a powerful gaming pc and then put an ssd to store the bad coded games to make them less slow.

I'd agree with BFBunny. I've just reinstalled from an SSD back to a spinner, and haven't noticed any drop in performance while playing. It takes maybe an extra 10 to 20 seconds to load now. Not worth it for the space.

Anyone worried about the reliability of SSDs, in general the newer generations are pretty good.

 

Samsung for example offers a 5 year warranties and 150 TBW lifetimes on their 850 series. Any further concerns, image your drive to a regular HDD periodically for backup purposes.

Thanks for your advice.

So from above, ssd could help me reduce the loading time, good at loading big file.

As the game storage disk, it don't need to keep my OS, if I lost the files it won't be very hurt.

And now I have 8gb RAM, so should I add another 8gb before buy a large ssd?

I think it's a good choice, 240gb ssd is 80, 512 is over 200, however 8g ram is much cheaper then those.

These manufactory of ssd also build RAM, however I still need pay the bill to them. LOL

I could never go back to an HDD with DCS, I did it with BF4 recently and the game is half way through but the time I get in now. My SSD is critically full now, I purchased the 109 and SU-27 campaign recently but can't install them. Once my windows 10 arrives, I'm going to either upgrade my 240gb main SSD to a bigger one, or just add another 1TB specifically for DCS.
