SSD vs. HDD for gaming.

Postby Spectre5095 » Mon Jun 18, 2012 4:05 am

I'm building a new PC and was wondering if I should buy a 240GB Kingston HyperX SSD for the Windows 7 OS and for my games (Skyrim, Battlefield 3, etc.). I know with an SSD I should see an increase in load time speeds for my games but will I notice any FPS increases or other performance boosts, in game, over a standard HDD?

The short answer is no. Basically an SSD will only benefit a person when they need to access files. Most games load things into memory. That is why RAM on the PC and graphics card are important.
