Hello,

I love the Total war series and am thinking about getting a 60 or 120 gb ssd to but Fall of the samurai on and the new rome II, and maybe empire.

I am wondering if any one has played these games of of an SSD and has seen a dramatic decrease in load time of the game/ goin in and out of battle.

I currently have mine on a western digital velociraptor 10000 RPM and its pretty fast and loads nicely, but the load times are still noticeable and the time waiting definitely accumulates after you play for an hour or two.

Just wondering if anybody has done this.

If you get an SSD, you'll notice a huge reduction in load times. No HDD compares. That is the benefit of SSDs.

I have heard of ways to move a game from steam (on hdd) to an SSD by doing something called a junction or mlink? have-you done this?

I haven't tried it yet, but I know you can uninstall our current games and re-install them from Steam to the SSD.

Alternatively, if you get a big enough SSD, you can just clone the velociraptor to the new SSD and you're done.

Yes junction points work. There's a utility (Steam Mover) that will create the junctions and move your gemes. It's easy and works well.
