so unless your playing games where you are more or less constantly looking at a loading screen an SSD wont help you much, in open world games they are actually pretty pointless as even from a standard hard drive it will catch to the RAM faster than you will ever move.
Well, of course that is why you would buy an SSD. ALL games have loading times. I would never suggest that an SSD would improve FPS because it doesn't do that. An SSD does make a HUGE difference in performance with your computer. Games don't run faster, but they load faster. Windows loads faster, programs load faster, windows open faster.
With a SSD install, the only direction you are heading is UP. Worth every penny. To suggest you are better off with an HDD is just silly. SSD is on a whole new level and is the future of computers.
