    Hey guys,

    I am going to build a PC for little gaming. I already have bought the core i7 8th generation processor. And EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 Graphics card for my gaming needs. So i was wondering that 1 TB HDD would be enough for little gaming? I read somewhere 1TB HDD would be enough for little gaming.

    But I need your suggestions because maybe in the future i may increase my gaming hours.

    So let me know. Thank you.

      It depends on how much and which games you install. If the average BIG game (you can neglect small games like Tetris) needs 100 GB of storage, and you don’t use your storage to store a lot of downloaded 4K movies, you can install 8 such games. See the system requirements of the specific games you want to buy for a better estimate.

      However, don’t buy a HDD. Buy an SSD.

      It’s become clear that today’s games expect to be on SSD. The neat part is that 1TB SSDs here are usually under 100USD.

      As to the size, that’s enough for quite a few games.

      In other words, the amount of storage you need, SSD or HDD, depends upon how many games or programs you wish to install on your PC.

      1 TB of storage space should be sufficient for little gaming, but it may become limiting if you plan to install many games or add more content in the future. I would recommend considering a larger storage option such as a 2 TB HDD or a 1 TB SSD. An SSD will have faster load times and better overall performance compared to an HDD. It’s also better to have more storage space than you need, rather than running out of storage later on.
