Building the GEARBOX: Take on Borderlands 2 With the Ultimate $2500 Gaming PC
These days a gamer doesn't buy a hard drive for raw speed; even the fastest are blown away by solid state drives. Assuming you can't fit all those games, videos, and documents on a 256GB SSD, you'll still need some platter-based storage to hold it.
