Right. It all depends on the game, but even in the games that take the most advantage of SSD's, the performance increase isn't that great. It'll help you with (as many people have said) load times and games in which you have to load content on-demand (such as flying around in WoW, where you have to load Terrain from HDD/SSD as fast as possible). Games where you don't have to load content as fast (FPS, RTS) the performance difference in-game is almost non-existant.
