Not while in game, no.

What you will see is faster map loading which in BF4 can make a difference if you are trying to get a jet/chopper before someone else.

Go for the hard drive. The SSD would shorten load times, but in game it would do nothing. Also, the cost of GB to Dollar is very high, so you could save a lot and store more by using a hard drive. Hope that helps :)

Nope, as mentioned, SSD's only assist in load times. Hence why Skyrim is such an awesome game to have on SSD.

Recent games have had 50+GB installs, not counting DLC. Music... depends where your library is. I store all mine locally and my library is 230GB+. If you are a cloud music person you might be OK with a 1TB.

1 TB is what I use. But you would probably be better off with 2 TB
