PCI-E SSD Explanation?

I wish to buy a PCI-E SSD but I don't know which one to buy and if its right for me..yet. I have done a lot of research but other than in benchmarks will I notice any difference? I want to use this to have windows on and my games. I know that with this drive the boot time will actually be slower but I am wondering if this thing can for instance make the load times in games like skyrim only 1 second long? Maybe even not happen at all? Also could you guys recommend me a PCI-E ssd? I was looking at an OCZ Revodrive but I haven't heard to much good from OCZ

    I doubt it would speed load times much more than a standard ssd. Most games need to setup a lot of data structures as part of loading, and that sort of thing happens on the cpu. A pci-e ssd would be of more use if you wanted to make an ultra-fast data server.

    Still, if you want to try it, based on reviews I'd go with the asus drive:
  2. You might want to check your motherboards specs first., many intel chipset/processors only support 16 pcie lanes and most people would rather dedicate those all the the GPU rather than to drop down to x8/x8 or x8/x4/x4 mode.
