With great power comes great responsibility. My Grandfather told me that. But, he was a thief and a con artist, so his word isn't worth much.

Which SSD are you getting?
Gaming. Mac. Pick one, not both. -HappyKhicken

You'll never be able to have your OS installed on a HDD again.
It's that noticeable.
When a machine with a HDD boots, it takes a minute or so for Windows to load. Then the computer is slow as hell for a couple more minutes until all the services start, etc.

With a SSD, it takes 15 seconds tops for Windows to boot (usually 10-12) and it's usable pretty much immediately.

I will be honest, you will be upset. Why? You will want a larger SSD right after you get your 120gb!

It won't help. The load times in Civ V are from calculations while the world generates, not read times from your disk.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
