To be honest, you're not going to see much in-game performance increase from having an SSD, if any at all. What it does kill is boot time and loading screens, which depending on the game can be painfully slow with a regular hard drive. --- My movie and gaming room: http://imgur.com/a/IjWr1 My pets: http://imgur.com/a/P9VGU
A lot of games have long load times (like Crysis 1) and those are greatly eliminated
FFXIV on SSD was night and day, I zone so much
Skyrim runs great but GTA4 seems to stutter like crazy when installed to my SSD. When I install it to my HDD it runs fine. --- Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up. See this? This is my BOOMSTICK!
I like games that I play frequently on SSD, especially multiplayer. If I am going to only put 20 hours in a game, no point. --- #1 LoL Poster NA: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/954437-league-of-legends/63627116
Battlefield 3 and Crysis 3 are pretty great to have on an SSD, Skyrim benefits heavily. It's not worth it for the civilization games because most of the loading times are due to the cpu crunching stuff. At least, i didn't notice much difference, and I had it on a ramdisk.
PS2 and wii isos are pretty good to have on an SSD. Currently residing on my RAMdisk is GTA: San Andreas. --- http://i.imgur.com/2dhh8tn.gif | http://i.imgur.com/p5EXSiq.jpg http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/article/2/2/7/201227_v1.gif
Minecraft is a great example, if you can ramdisk it even better. Basically, if you're moving you're loading, no way around it. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
