Why can't you use an internal hard disk? m 0 l hunuok July 4, 2011 4:01:36 PM An SSD will certainly speed up your PC performance. Load times will dramatically increase as will data transfer rates. If gaming don't expect higher frame rates though. A series 2 SSD (say 60Gb) for Windows/Office etc will enhance your system and is relatively inexpensive. Coupled with a HDD for storage, it will be an ideal setup. Good luck. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Solvedshould i upgrade to ssd?
