Very true, the first time I loaded FO3 onto an SSD I quickly noticed the lack of stuttering I normally got with a HDD when running around out in open world.

I also obviously notice differences in loading times. The first Assassins Creed is an example of this, when I first got the game I was running on HDDs and it normally took a little while for the game to startup (ie loading bar would load in steps) last month I reinstalled the game on my SSD and noticed the loading bar was done in like a second.

It is worth it, I did a comparison when I first got mine loading two instances one from the file still on my mechanical drive and the other off my Intel (my c300 is even faster) and the results were pretty amazing.

I would load up in Dalaran (this was in the summer) with every character clothed and visible before hte mechanical one would be 3/4 through the loading bar. Give it a try it is really worth in imo.

am sure gta4 should be better, also oblivion, fallout

if i had tons of money, instead of buying ssd, i would buy tons of ram and create a 10gb ramdisk to put the game on it

You would still need to transfer the files to the RAMDisk first before loading.... or you could go with hardware-based RAMDisks.
Once again...

El-wrongo. A game that loads the environment real-time is going to benefit, especially if that game has high-def textures. GTA IV would be a good example, you can spam draw distance with an SSD and not worry abut pop-in. This is especially true with games like New Vegas, which are poorly coded from the getgo. Throw NV on an SSD and it's like you've got an entirely new rig.

it would be a friggin shame if you would read my post. Notice that i said it removes stutter from load ins.

ALso you dont need an SSD to accomplish what you describe in Fallout, all it takes is a defragged harddrive with a decent speed and lots of memory, as you can preload everything it needs.

so no, its not life changing. If his rig is playing fallout at low settings, and SSD will be of very little use in terms of improving his gaming experience.
