Most cost effective use is as a system drive. Games will load a bit faster if you have an SSD but these days most games don't load on the fly anyway so the performance benefit in games won't be that substantial if you have enough ram. I can tell you from my own experience however that having an SSD as a system drive boosts system responsiveness quite substantially.

There's a ton of benefit to running a game from an SSD so long as the game is coded well. If the object loading code is crap, the faster media won't help.


Going from any mechanical HDD to a decent SSD is going to always yield performance benefits, regardless of how the "object loading code" is "coded" :huh:

There are a ton of games that have loading objects tied to timers and all kinds of retarded **** >.<

There's a couple that have the object loading on the render loop :o
