  1. The monitor will make you able to play on 1080p whilst the SSD will offer no performance difference in games , it only speeds up the boot times and loading times.
  2. Yea I know that but, what would you do if u had to pick one?
  3. Best answer
    It depends on if you're using programs like Photoshop or Cinema4D. If you are, then get an SSD. If you're gaming, get the monitor.
  4. Alright, I game a lot so I guess Ill go with the monitor
  5. i can see that the motherboard you have has 2 SATA 3 port. no normal Hard drive is capable of an actual 6Gb/s transfer rate. only an SSD can truly have that transfer rate. but if you already satisfied of the boot time and loading time of your OS/games then go for the LED monitor. if not go for the SSD.
