Solved Should I buy a ssd for my games? if so what one? Tags: SSD Games Hard Drives Memory Last response: August 12, 2013 5:55 PM in Memory Share covertcode August 12, 2013 3:30:51 PM Hey everyone, quick question. I currently own a 120gb ssd for my os - and a 1tb hdd for my games, I think my game load times are sluggish the hdd is 7200rpm - should I buy a 500gb ssd for my pc and get rid of the hdd, I am going to do this in the hope of reducing the load times and increasing the reliability of the machine so If I do get one, what one? I was looking at this one - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-500GB-Basic-Solid-State... - or this one - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingston-Technology-HyperX-Upgr... thanks!!

It also has a slightly faster write speed and the same read speed. m 0 l covertcode August 12, 2013 5:46:27 PM Thanks if I go for the Samsung will I get a considerable difference with boot times in games?? m 0 l Can't find your answer ?

The boot time wont be any different from the other ssd because the read times are the same but moving files onto the ssd will be faster. But compared to a 7200rpm hdd it should be much faster Share Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedWhich one I should buy (SSD:ADATA vs SAMSUNG EVO)?
