Yeah, a 1TB M2 drive is the way to go right now if you can do it.
I really don't like Kinguin. I think the only time I use them is to get delisted Steam codes.

If you include their insurance program as part of the purchase (usually a buck or two) you're pretty much guaranteed to have a working code.

Back to the OS topic, Windows 10 Home often times run for around $10, a Pro for around $12-15.

It's a moral thing, not a functional thing.

^^^ not sure what the Exos drive is. My 10TB is an "Enterprise" series drive.

We are still barely breaking 1TB for cost efficiency of SSDs. Wonder how much before we get cost effective even on a 10TB.

[Edit] The logo for Exos says "Enterprise" in smaller letters.

I have a pair of 7200rpm WD Blue 1TB drives, and a 256GB SSD for my OS. I have enough empty space across those three drives that I could consolidate down to a single 2TB no problem. I've got roughly 50 games of varying sizes installed, most of which I've never even booted up...

@RM - Erm, you mentioned ~2.25 TB approx, so having enough free space to consolodate to a single 2TB drive would be pretty expected?

I'm currently rocking:

Drive - Free/Total
C: 362GB/464GB (OS/Programs SSD)
D: 10.5GB/465GB (Gaming SSD)
E: 606GB/3.63TB (Games HDD)
F: 118GB/5.45TB (Media)
G: 2.5GB/930GB (Spare HDD)
H: 74GB/4.54TB (External HDD)
J: 10GB/3.63TB (External HDD)
K: 5GB/931GB (Spare HDD)
M: 3.9TB/5.45TB (External HDD)

As you can see, I ummm, use a lot of data. Mostly I DL the highest quality translated versions of anime and stuff. Yeah, I don't even watch 1/4 of it, but it's there if I ever get around to it >_> I have only played a fraction of my games, though the ones on the D drive are high priority to me, like Skyrim SE, Fallout 4, etc.

I am at about 45% on my Enterprise 10TB drive, but I have also been intentionally holding back.
I could fill it up probably pretty quickly but something about 80+% full bothers me. If I were to get a 16TB drive I probably could get 10+TB filled in a short time. I don't have an immediate need to do so but once it hits say the $300 range for an Enterprise drive of the 16TB range, I might climb on board the ship!
