Should I use a hard drive or SSD to speed up my system?

It depends on what you need your system to do. Generally, an SSD will offer faster boot times and faster access to stored data than a hard drive, but it will cost more. If you just need some extra storage space, a hard drive may be a better choice. If you’re doing tasks that require fast access to data, such as gaming or video editing, an SSD is usually the way to go.
