I had a friend trying to sell me on going with an SSD,and while I can say it seems that going with one in the future would sound like a good idea,however right now I am just concentrating on getting my bones together not so much about having the greatest rig out. He was mentioning that it overall improves actual physical "gameplay" ??? While I was under the assumption that it would basically ONLY improve on load times,boot up,and access of all your memory. I can not wrap my mind on exactly what it would improve on other than just loading these programs /games I was under the assumption that once the games loaded out it is up to your RAM,GPU,and CPU from there. Never knew that any game would have to consistantly be going back to the HDD after the initial "load" while the gameplay phase took off.
