I just bought the 1tb WD SN850X ssd for my system drive. Games will run on it. Is it decent for your gamer opinions out here?

I have the 2TB version for my new build. It should be fine for a system drive, but I’m still going to use a Samsung 2TB NVMe for my C: drive.

It should be fine for that, but why would you buy something then ask if it's any good? Wouldn't it be more prudent to ask first, then buy?

Most ssds will net very similar results in games, just faster loading, very little difference between most ssds, so yea, its going to be fine for loading games.

Yeah I have one on my Framework laptop. Crazy speeds, like 6970MBps. But I cant tell it apart from a 500MBps SATA SSD in day to day.
