And have you joined our platoon?! lol
Actually I seem to be one of the first in games even with my HDDs. I never thought that hard drive speed played much of a factor in that- always thought it was internet speed only.
I suppose I should have clarified... I know what the OS and all that that entails. I just meant when others say they use their SSD for their system's drive, I didn't know whether they meant they only have windows on said drive or if they put all their programs, documents, music, etc... on that drive, since doing that would seem to use up a LOT of 'writes'. LOL Now I've made myself out to be a total computer noob hahaha....
