Game file sizes are getting irresponsibly large (looking at you, Call of Duty), so having lots of fast storage space is more important than ever. If you need an upgrade, Amazon’s got a great SSD deal to help alleviate your hard drive woes. More importantly, SSDs over significantly better load times in open-world games. So, if you’re upgrading your rig before Cyberpunk 2077 comes out, this SSD is a good start.
One of the best SSDs, the Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB, is back on sale after briefly being out of stock a few days ago: They are on sale for $250, half off the original price, which is a crazy good deal. Its read/write speeds (3,500/3,300MB/s) offer good performance, which translates to speedy load times for gaming.
