I'm kinda new with the SSD thing so I'm kinda wondering if its worth getting the extra SSD just for gaming? I was reading a lot of topics about it and they're saying that it only helps with the loading time for games, Is it true? so what's your opinion about it?


I'm thinking about getting either a Samsung 840 evo or a Kingston HyperX, feel free if you have any suggestions in what should I buy as my SSD.

I did exactly that, a second SSD for games. Won't do much for play-ability but starting a game and levels loading is much faster. The benefit is nowhere near as noticiable as an OS SSD but why the heck not, even 240GB SSDs are affordable now.

Oh, and I went with the HyperX. It was a good deal less expensive than the 840 which I was considering as well. The 840 performs slightly better in benches but wasn't too worried about the difference for a game drive. And, even with the HyperX's slight disadvantage to the 840 its still significantly faster than any platter drive.
