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!! More about : buy ssd games tom_taylor97 August 12, 2013 4:14:03 PM I would say that the samsung is the better option. It is cheaper and has 20GB extra memory. It also has a slightly faster write speed and the same read speed. 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??

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 Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedWhat SSD Should I Buy? Forum SolvedWhat SSD Drives for Desktop should i buy ?
