Was hoping some would would be able to help me. I'm considering buying a 10tb NAS drive to store all of my Steam games on my PC. I'm tired of downloading them, playing them and downloading again in 6 months to play again. I just want my whole collection saved and ready to play at anytime.
Will my Virgin broadband be restricted on download speed as I have around 350 games, at 40gig a game ish, so will take some time. And, would I be better off downloading at a game a day or just getting as many downloaded as I can in one hit.
I have Virgin 300 mb speed
My first post so thank you for any responses in advance
Thanks for the reply Danny. So Virgin will be fine with me downloading 363 games @ 50gb ish to a NAS drive. I only came over to Virgin from Sky as it took forever to download my games.
I only ask as one of the lads I work with said they will get funny with you for using so much bandwidth in one hit. I've downloaded about 1tb so far but am doing it a game or two at a time. I was thinking of just doing the lot in one hit, from Steam, EA and others
If they aren't going to be funny or restrict my speed then that's what I will do. It makes sense as once they are downloaded the will only be update downloads in future, well that and new games lol
a 1gbps network connection (what i'd expect from the nas) will be limited to about 100MB/s pretty slow if you are installing games on it. If you are only planning on backing them up but not using them from the drive then a NAS is fine. But won't be fast enough to install and play from
