I really could use some help:)
I am playing with skyrim since it came out, I upgraded my rig for it, but now I got to the point when I need to do something wise.
I have a 250 gb samsung EVO SSD drive, but my mods folder in MO reached 150 gb. I have Windows on it and also Guildwars 2 which I cannot get rid of (family reasons)
so I would need more space as now I constantly deleting saves to have at least 5 gb free space on it.
Now I cannot afford a 1TB SSD, I won`t go for 500 gb because it will be small soon too, if I change my drive I will go for a bigger one.
There is another way, buying a Hybrid drive SSD/HD. My understanding is that the drive using the SSD part for cache (which is seems to be 8gb flash). I cannot find any relevant information how Skyrim accessing the data, so I am not sure it won`t slow down the game (is it constantly loading textures and models? How it is affecting gameplay?).
I am using 250 mods, HD texture packs, K enb, so my system is really working hard, I am a bit afraid, if the reading speed will get slower the game won`t load or will CTD.
So would need a bit of an expert advice, is it worth buying the hybrid and replace my small SSD, or wait until I get money for a 1 TB SSD? (which probably won`t happen for a loooong time)
