Default Too Many new Games not enough space

So I have just noticed that it seems like a bunch of new games/dlc are coming out in Sept.

There is F1, Civilization V, the new ME2 dlc, new DA:O dlc, HAWX 2, and Final Fantasy XIV. I might be missing some but either way I have a major problem, I am out of space. This is were having a 128GB SSD is a major downfall.

Not really complaining at all, I mean bring on the games, but damn why do they all seem to come out all at once.

Move the games you don't play to a mechanical drive, move them back when you need them.

I have 90% of my games on a 2TB black. I have over a TB of games. I only put none steam games on my SSD or games that would benefit from faster loading times. Most games it doesn't matter if it is on an SSD or not. Few games have super long load times that it would really benefit like Hearts of Iron 3 for some reason has long load times....

Don't forget RUSE also comes out.

That's why I have a RAID5 array of Samsung F3 1TBs alongside my 120GB SSD

I just assumed everyone with a SSD kept a hard drive (or a few for RAID) to put big things on...

I have a 1TB HD dedicated to game installs. About 360GB left, so it looks like I'm doing pretty well for space.

Well I do have about 4TB of regular drives but they are almost all full now. As it is I have used steammover to move my Oblivion install, GTA 4, and have removed a few others.

I still need more space though. I do have another 1TB drive that I could swap into my machine and remove the 500 I have most of my games on. Of course I would really prefer to just get a bunch more 2TB drives and use those. But lets face it some of these games are getting huge. As it is I just reinstalled Dragon Age and it is 18.5GB under program files and then another 3.5GB under my docs. So really over 20GB just for one game.
