Graphics cards and processors might get the headlines, but no gaming PC is complete without storage – and the type of storage you use can make a huge difference to the speed and responsiveness of any rig.
Storage is important, then, and the market has rarely been this exciting. Drives that use M.2 and NVMe technology are breaking speed records, and more conventional SSDs and hard disks have never been bigger, faster or cheaper.
