Keep an eye on r/buildapcsales. The SSDs they post are generally good but you'd need to buy an external closure for a couple bucks. This drive combined with this enclosure are a good deal for less than $60.

I have an SSD and that improved my loading times by a good amount of time, also helps to have better internet, my speeds are good enough but not great at all.

They really aren't that expensive, I'll point you in the right direction if you want. Also helps a ton with games like PUBG, BF, Red Dead, GTA etc.


Edit: If anyone is wondering I have one 512GB Silicon Power 3D NAND A55 SLC Cache Performance Boost SATA III 2.5" 7mm (0.28") Internal Solid State Drive from Amazon for $49.99 USD along with another of the same Silicon Power SSD but in 256GB for $28.99 USD.

Then you need the enclosure which costs $8.99: Sabrent 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 Tool-Free External Hard Drive Enclosure [Optimized for SSD, Support UASP SATA III]. Super simple set up, literally open the enclosure by sliding the top off, slide the SSD into the connection slot in the enclosure, put the top on, plug it in to the USB slot and turn the thing on. Really nice price, had never heard of the brand but it has really good reviews, and works well for me. Just about the cheapest SSD I've seen on Amazon with an average review of 4.5+ (and at least 1k reviews).

This is what I picked up from Amazon, works amazing! Just plug it in, transfer D2 over, bye bye loading times!

The A55 is $5 dollars more on Amazon. This doesn't seen like a good deal at all.

Is that much better than tbis one?

Here is an excellent gaming rig for fortnite and everything else. This build uses current sales and is manually edited by me.

First is the excellent Ryzen 2600. This is the best price performance CPu on the market today. It is much better then the 2200g.

Edit: didn't realize the Ryzen stock cooler won't fit in a node 202. Went with cryorig C7 to keep costs down. Glad I double checked.

The Mobo has built in WIFI. It is an older revision so might need a bios update. Built in wifi is rare on modern mobos but will be great for a traveler like you. This will also free up a USB port, and keep the insides clearer of junk.

Good old Team Vulcan. Works fine with Ryzen. Is cheap and decent. One important point is this ram is relatively low profile so it will work good in small form factor build.

Storage is a 512 GB SSD that pcpartpicker's algorithm can't find at amazon, so I manually edited it in. This SSD is generally well reviewed budget choice. It will work as boot drive and a gaming drive. In such a small form factor case we stick with SSDs, especially cause the node 202 case doesn't have a 3.5 inch HDD drive bay.

Video Card. We go AMD cause it is all that will fit in the budget. Also Freesync. This 8GB card trades blows with Nvidias 1060 6GB, but for 30-50 bucks cheaper.

Power supply. I went with a 450 watt cause it was cheap and fit the budget. You might consider a higher wattage PSU, but most higher wattage PSUs are 40-50 bucks higher. I decided not to go with the integrated PSU in the Node 202 cause I've heard mixed things. If you want to save 15 bucks and get the Node 202 with integrated PSU then by all means.

Monitor doesn't show up at Pcpartpicker so I manually entered it in. It's a pretty good monitor and on sale for 65 bucks cheaper then comparable monitors.

For windows 10, we install it without paying for it. Microsoft allows you to do this. You can then buy windows 10 at your leisure later.

EDIT fucking reddits shit backend keeps fucking not saving my links and edits.

u/coldtires · 3 pointsr/PS4Pro

The PS4 Pro operating system is no different from standard PS4 as they both run off the same kind of HDD, it runs smooth but also lags in the same places.

Assuming there is no hardware flaw with your PS4 causing these issues it may be the HDD is the culprit, swapping that out with an SSD will make a difference as with an SSD the operating system will run much smoother.

SSD prices have dropped quite a bit get a cheap $49 500GB drive and put that into the PS4, if you still get freezing/lag problems then it's the console that is faulty. You can still use the SSD with a new PS4 or PS4 Pro and remove any possible OS lag.

u/not12listen · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Fear not - welcome to the world of inexpensive SSDs. :)


u/kansasjeremy · 2 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

i don't think i'm too far off.. you can grab an ssd and 3.0 enclosure for under $60. pretty close to half of the t5 you linked.



at the end of day, it's your money and you can do what you want. SSDs are getting so cheap it just seems silly to spend $100 for 500gb.

u/GSXRules · 2 pointsr/vmware

SSD in a USB 3.0 enclosure and share with your friends or move between systems. Just make sure you power off and not suspend.



(links are for for example, I have CoolMax enclosures and who knows what SSDs.)

u/due_the_drew · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

What would be the difference between the one in OP's post and this one?


Both right around the same price

u/Traezz · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Ram on Amazon

SSD on Amazon

Super easy install. It took about ten minutes. The hardest part was getting the Amazon box open. LOL

u/Wellstone-esque · 1 pointr/buildapc

For starters I will say that watercooling is overrated. One thing about air is that it will never leak and damage your components, and unlike a Radiator which will eventually (5 yearsish) need to be replaced (from a pump failure if you are fortunate, from a leak if you aren't), an air cooler can go forever and at most you would only need to replace the fans. Also air is cheaper and if done right just as quiet.

With a 2k budget I can throw together something very high end:

Note this is not the full list, a couple of things I found on sale on /r/buildapcsales/ that I couldn't load into pcpartpicker. That is a great subreddit for finding deals on components.

This is a good value SSD which will be your boot drive + storage for your favorite games.

HDD on sale for general storage:

For the Monitor I would go for this, its a great 1440p 144hz and its on sale:

Lastly you will need a Windows key, I always recommend buying a greymarket activation key of w10 pro, they can be had for around 20$. Add that all up and you get a grand total of 2250. You can drop that price down a little bit by getting cheaper mice, a cheaper keyboard, ditching the headphones if you already have speakers and don't want them, or dropping down from a 1070ti to a 1070. My build is pretty similar to u/Kronos_Selai reasonable example but I hunted you down a couple of deals, got a cheaper case (though I think its fine) and used the savings to upgrade your graphics processor which will get you higher framerates at higher settings.

u/Dubstep_Hotdog · 1 pointr/Windows10

The behavior you describe is in-line with a Mechanical drive failure.
> DR0, has a bad sector.Reset to device

Was this in the event viewer? if this this is a very clear indication that the drive is failing. SMART "Usually" picks up on sector related issue but I've seen many cases where it doesn't.

If this were my machine, I'd swap in a new drive, preferably a Solid State one. How much of the 1TB are you using? If 350GB or less, you should go ahead and get this drive and clone your data over to it.

u/Orangematz · 1 pointr/SuggestALaptop

Cheaper SSD here.

Seems that this machine only has one bay open, so yes, you'd need the caddy. It says universal so I want to assume it would fit in the Asus just fine. But just in case, here is one that is advertised to be working with that model.

u/xxgobiasindxx · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

Search slickdeals for an internal ssd and get an enclosure. Or see if you have a microcenter near you. They had a $40 250GB recently. SSDs have been getting dirt cheap. $70 512GB https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07997QV4Z/

u/SurreptitiousSyrup · 1 pointr/gadgets

A 500 GB SSD costs the same as a 1TB hard drive. This not even taking into account that Sony would be able to them much cheaper than we would pay for them, so it's very possible that they could so with just a SSD.

u/wumbonumber9 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Both of those TEAM drives are pretty good, but it's an asian company without many U.S. resources and as such might not be the smoothest sailing for warranty.

This is what I’m using. I’ll test it again I just left my office but I think it’s while recording only.

u/LyteWing75 · 1 pointr/techsupport

I recently purchased this unit and I have to say it was money well spent. Perhaps it is a lesser known brand, but in my testing it performs as good as the "big boys" and ticks all the boxes in the feature department. For the price...it was a no-brainer.

u/linux_vegan · 1 pointr/PCRepair

Have you installed an OS before? It isn't hard and Microsoft will walk you through it step by step. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 . Do you still have the windows 10 key for your laptop? It's usually on a sticker on the bottom. If not it will still probably be fine. Microsoft should recognize your motherboard and let you activate without the key.

And I don't know what model laptop you have, but here's the gist of what you would need to do to fix it yourself https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/HP+Omen+15-ax280nd+Hard+Drive+Replacement/78582 .

You can probably find a guide like this for your specific laptop. You just need to get a hold of whatever tools you need for disassembly. Probably just a small screwdriver. And buy a new 2.5" hard drive or SSD. Make sure to get a 2.5", 3.5" is bigger and for desktops. And if you want to upgrade your laptop, you could drop a few extra bucks on an SSD like this https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-Performance-Internal-SP512GBSS3A55S25/dp/B07997QV4Z/ref=sxin_2_ac_d_pm?ac_md=2-1-QmV0d2VlbiAkNTAgYW5kICQxMDA%3D&keywords=ssd&pd_rd_i=B07997QV4Z&pd_rd_r=8c8ec285-e5ed-4056-b88d-6dd584a83a66&pd_rd_w=oWMGp&pd_rd_wg=Ncqs3&pf_rd_p=64aaff2e-3b89-4fee-a107-2469ecbc5733&pf_rd_r=SMWN86TBJ3JAJH967WW6&qid=1564678407&s=gateway . It makes the computer feel faster. It'll boot up quicker, programs will open faster, and the computer will just feel more snappy when you click stuff. Shouldn't have a big affect on gaming performance besides making load times shorter.

Best of luck, hope you get this sorted.

u/DivineDecay · 1 pointr/mac

Get one asap, seriously, you won't believe the difference it makes. You'll never be able to go back to a HDD. Prices for SSDs probably aren't going to get significantly lower in the next year.

You can literally buy a 512GB SSD for about $50 on Amazon right now, though the best idea would be to go with a Samsung 860 EVO version at $77.99 as they're far faster and more reliable as well.

u/HarshLanguage · -1 pointsr/buildapc

At that price you'll be looking at mass-market drives without fancy features, but there are lots of solid choices. I wouldn't worry too much about finding "the best" or getting lost in the technical details. Find the highest capacity drive you can with good reviews.

For SATA 2.5" drives, there's a Silicon Power 512gb SSD for $49.99.

If your motherboard has an m.2 slot for an NVME drive, and you can stretch your budget to $54.99, there's a Silicon Power 512gb NVME m.2 2280 SSD.
