Quick question regarding ssd vs hdd for gaming

#1Maxo996Posted 2/8/2014 5:21:22 PM
Besides better loading times with an ssd would there be much gameplay difference with a 7200 rpm external hdd with a usb 3.0 connection? Aka, I want to store pretty much all my games on my external hdd and leave my ssd open for OS, programs, etc.

Some games have choppy framerates while things are loading outside of a loadscreen, Bioshock Infinite and Skyrim come to mind, but even on a mechanical drive I didn't think it was too bad. Had I not known it was an issue I probably could have ignored it or just chalked it up to a particularly demanding segment. In BI it was less than a second each time it happened and I'm sure I missed it happening several times.
