I'm planning a new computer early next year for P3DV4.  I do have several questions about VR ready, 4K video, etc.  However my question in this forum has to do with HDD configuration.  Most game ready computers come with a SSD with an additional old style HDD.  I would imagine the operating system (Windows 10) would be on the SSD.  Would it be a good investment to add an additional SSD for P3Dv4?  What sizes for each SSD would be optimal? 

Appreciate any advice or feedback.

Thanks,

Ken

While I can't quantify a performance gain in p3dv4 when it runs from a ssd like mine does, it surely can't hurt.  My p3dv4 resides on a dedicated 240g  ssd drive, I think that's enough room for just about any amount of add ons...

Yeah, put all your flightsims folders onto an SSD. For one thing it speeds up loading a new location flight in FSX tremendously! Having simulations on SSD helps a lot!

 

Most SSD's are small enough to fit 2 into each 3.5 inch HDD slot using $5 double brackets. But then the SATA cables might require straight plug tips instead of right angle tips (if you are using SATA drives).
