Your programs will load faster, as will Windows itself, but the programs' speed itself (like a game or a video editing program) will be unaffected. Basically, your computer will be able to load files faster, but the processing speed will remain unaffected. eloplayspolo February 19, 2010 4:27:51 PM Best answer selected by eloplayspolo.
