SSD worth getting? Is this a good SSD for the price?

I use my PC for gaming ,and some games take forever to load, which is very annoying. So I think it would help there. I heard that SSDs help in DayZ for performance, with the way the map loads or something. I didn't think you could actually gain FPS in game from an SSD, can you?
Here is the SSD I found. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226237&ignorebbr=1 Is this a good brand? Its a great price, since its 500mb Read/wright + less than 50 cents per Gb.
Thanks

  1. yes SSDs are worth it, but you wouldn't notice any difference between the one you've chosen and a $130 256GB SSD. eg SANDISK

    You're right that the biggest impact is load times and fps aren't really affected. If you're dissatisfied with your load times then it would be a worthwhile investment

    Is the one I linked made by a decent company?
  4. The only good brands for SSDs are Samsung and Intel, i wouldn't trust anything else
