quote hiigaranNeedless to say, but initially, I was under the impression that because I had to play my Steam games off of my HDD, an SSD would bring a significant performance boost.processing performance > load times. priorities, dude.
quote bakabakaReads and Writes to an SSD are much faster than a HDD. If I were in your shoes and had the budget, I'd have my OS and apps/games load from an SSD and a 1TB HDD hosting my mp3s, mp4s, etc.
Essentially its a waste of time and performance to store large files that are rarely accessed onto an SSD. You pay too much per GB for that. Save big fiels there upfront then send them to a HDD later on.
quote hiigaranI overclock a little bit, and still don't receive optimal performance on more demanding titles. I believe upgrading is the only solution at this point, but thanks for the suggestion!if you intend on upgrading your CPU, try overclocking first. that should be able to give you a decent enough boost that you can get closer to maxing out your games.
quote bakabakaWhile the bulk of my problems do lie in the online-only Crysis 3 beta, I do know it is not a connection problem, as my ping for this and most other online games is generally under 60.Just to confirm, if it's a network game the lag will be due to network connections rather than an SSD.
I did a side by side comparison of Starcraft 2 on HDD vs SSD... the results were amazing. Unfortunately Diablo 3 loads from battlenet.
SSDs are definitely great when the content loads from the drive.
