With the game installs being around 40GB and upwards, you're going to need something big.

for that very small segment of the market play games that is.

for the rest of us who actually have a life drives like this may prove interesting in time. I can only hope that these are more reliable than the batch of Samsung SSD's we bought a few months ago. Out of 10 drives 6 have failed so far. That is IMHO far more important than playing silly games.

Re: Small enough...

Really? You think people who play games have no life? I use my computers at home for two things: playing games and writing music. I also use them for work, but if I wasn't dependent on having to work for a living then I wouldn't do that. Yeah, so I piss about on the internet too, but that's during work time.

Of course, I do plenty of stuff without computers, but for the computer-related parts, saying someone who uses them to play games has no life is a bit sad, quite honestly.

By the way, if you really do want to do something useful with your life, may I suggest you attend an adult education course (assuming you're an adult) on the English language. You grammar and general fluency would be poor for an eight year old.
