Kingston KC3000 2 TB

Hello there,

Between the Adata Legend 1TB vs Kingston KC3000 1TB & WDSNX580 1TB

Would the Kingston be better because of its large SLC cache?

I'm building a new PC with AM4. Even though my mobo Gigabyte B550M DS3H supports PCIe 4, my processor 5600G is limited to PCIe 3.
So, I know I will get the PCIe 3 speed.

But what I care about most is longevity & storing files on my pc.

I've never used an NVMe before.
My purpose is mostly web browsing & streaming content.
And games maybe sometimes a little.

I already have bought 1 NVMe before for keeping Windows in it, which is 256GB. But it's DRAM-less. [ Not sure if it would create any issue for me ]

So, would the current 256GB NVMe suffice for my purpose or should I buy a new 1TB NVMe separately?

P.S. - I will be using a 1TB HDD separately for keeping my files.

Any, suggestions, tips & answers much appreciated.

Thank you.
