I just gotta get an Internet connection, and then I can join you at 2 in the morning... because of timezones. -.-

 

I'm currently using the neighbor's wifi. And yes it's perfectly legal since it counts as a hotspot.

 

Only problem is it is absolute shit...

 

Like, this is the best I can get, and I have to be in a certain part of the building to get it.

Status update: I installed two more SSDs: a 1 TB SATA III drive for Windows 11 and a 2 TB NVMe drive for games. I think SATA III SSDs are fine for OS drives. Sure they have somewhat worse startup times than PCIe, but this really doesn't matter after that simply due to the fact that they are not hard disk drives. I think keeping video game loading times as low as possible is more important, and if my Windows 11 install decides to be a slow pile of garbage after a few years of updates, I can just nuke the whole drive and reinstall Windows without affecting my games.

 

SATA III drive is a 1 TB Crucial MX500. It's a fairly affordable drive with a decent amount of cache. The NVMe drive is a 2 TB Samsung 970 Evo. This drive is a bit more expensive per GB, but the speeds speak for themselves, and no cables are directly needed for it which makes cable management nicer.

 

I want to keep my Arch Linux install, so it's taking up my second NVMe drive slot.

You did the same drive setup I did. It worked out well for me. Windows rot is real and I got like 3 years out of it before reinstalling. Only lost a couple old games I carelessly installed without changing default path.
