Hello, i need help figuring out if there is any difference between the Samsung 830 and 840 pro 256GB version for gaming will i see any differences in loading times for rpg/open world games between the 2 SSD's? like fallout games, elder scrolls (i will also install mods and such), gta and saints row, and other games like metro 2033, batman etc. i will be using the ssd as the boot drive, games and some software. i am getting a HDD later for other software and games.
this is the last thing in my future system built im getting before i order everything. here are my other components if interested.

To be honest, probably not. You would have to run benchmarks in order to measure any differences. Most of the modern 3rd generation ssd's form a fairly tight performance cluster.

I doubt you would notice a difference. The 840 Pro is the fastest 2.5 SSD out there though (I have two and love em).

I don't you will notice, the difference must be huge to be able to feel it.
