Comments, Questions & Reviews:
how much by Kyle
including my OS (windows 10 64-bit) could you give me a rough guess on how many triple A games this HDD can hold (games such as new CoD games, Battlefield, fallout 4, just cause ETC.)
AAA games always have a variety of hard drive requirements, some examples:
GTA:V - 65GB - Massive open world, highly detailed.
The Witcher 3 - 40GB - Massive open world, highly detailed.
Skyrim - 6GB - Massive open world, highly detailed.
Battlefield 4 - 30GB - First person shooter, multiplayer focused, highly detailed.
Call of Duty Advanced Warfare - 55GB - First person shooter, multiplayer focused, highly detailed.
Wolfenstein: The New Order - 50GB - First person shooter, single player focused, highly detailed.
Project CARS - 25GB - Very highly detailed racing game.
As we move towards higher quality textures and models the hard drive requirements will also rise, if we set an average of 40GB for a AAA game then do 931GB (usual size of a formatted 1TB drive) by 40GB you will be able to install around 20 'AAA' games.

Compatibility by Jakeeh123
Is this compatible with an early 2009 20" imac
As long as it takes 3.5" SATA drives then it should be fine.
