I Play Sims 3 with all expansions , that is 30.7GB
My save game size is ~1GB

Is it possible to instant load ? :D 

Here is my spec
i5-2500K @ 4.5Ghz
Biostar tz77xe4
2 x 4GB Kingston ddr3 1333 9-9-9-24 1.5v
Plextor M5Pro 128GB (windows + Sims 3)
WD Blue 500GB SATA II
Powercolor HD 5770 1GB

When install sims to HDD it take about 1 minute to load.
Try SSD it take just 30secs.
But I still not happy , want to see under 10secs.

I wonder if something like ddr3-2400 with low CL will shorten my load time ?

The speed is basically limited to your harddrive/SSD's read speed. I doubt you can get lower than 10 seconds with a 1gb read. Getting faster RAM will only help it a little bit (maybe 3-4 seconds).

The DRAM can only take it as fast as the Drive will feed it, two SSDs in RAID 0 will speed things up
