I will be back tomorrow.
Im in a strange situation where I went with my original upgrade plan and have purchased a Icydock MB324SP-B SAS hotswap bay to make use of some older SSDs, I have 2x250GB SSDs sitting in there now but i dont actually know what to put on them... I normally have games that i play regularly on SSD, but i dont play that many games anymore. its either guildwars, PUBG, KF2 or BF1 and they are all already on an SSD...
