I already have OS on a 240GB, but I need a gaming SSD, should I go with a 500GB (140 USD) or 1TB (300USD) sized?

Okay. I’m leaning towards the 500GB; I could put this money ona better GPU... What do you guys think?

My GPU is trash. :(

I'd personally invest in a better GPU before a games-only-SSD if I were you.
I used to have a good signature, then I got modded for it.
Now I shall try to think of something edgier to put here.

LOLOL I can’t do that right now. GPU’s are still overpriced.

A 4GB 1050ti, which is a step up from what you have without even mentioning the fact it has twice the VRAM, has been as low as $100 recently. If you're thinking about dropping $300 on a SSD, you've clearly got the available funds. Hell, you even admit your GPU is a piece of s***.

True. I was really waiting for Strix Vega 64 but AMD is killing me with their production problems.

I only got a small 250gig for the OS pretty much, and one game in the future I plan on putting on it.

?? You can get a 1070 for $400, probably less due to black friday/xmas coming up.
That's not overpriced and only $100 more than the 1TB SSD.

I believe $380 is the proper MSRP for a 1070.

I like Asus cards but the cheapest is a PNY 430 USD on Amazon. Anyhow. I wanted an AMD Card after witnessing a friend’s 1080 catch fire. No thanks.

He must of had a bumb card. Mine runs cool. But at that price might as well bump up to a 1080 for $70 more.
