Hi all,

My buddy is in the market for a new SSD and it got me interested to see what the market has to offer.
I currently run an OCZ Revo Drive 3 120Gb. It seems to really shine when dealing with large files but mediocre when dealing with smaller stuff. Im a gamer. Its all I do, its all I am generally interested in... So...

I was wondering what sort of bench is important in achieving the best performance in games. Load times in particular as I know SSD performance doesn't effect much else. I would imagine PC games to incorporate a multitude of small files so would something like a Vertex 4 be in favor when it comes to loading up say... League of Legends?

Thank you in advance!

Load times will be faster with any SSD (first into new map) but overall game play depends on other things as well.
