Insatlling WoW on SSD

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well, got Crucial M4 64gb version.
Windows installed on it drivers I need, programs I need. 34Gb free, is it smart idea to install WoW on it?
Its the game I play all the time.

Yeh, you would beat everyone on loading screens and enter BGs first! Also chars in cities will load much faster!

Well, my WoW installation folder is roughly 24GB. If you don't plan on needing anything else (I think leaving 10GB open is a good idea), then definitely do it.

It's one of the games you will notice the most as far as difference between mechanical

Yeah, WoW seemed more snappy and enjoyable on a SSD.

I tried BC2 and BLOPS on my SSD and neither seems to load faster, ot at least not that much that I would notice I guess. Heaven 2.5 bench also loads the same it seems.

from my personal experience .. when you get around to a large patch day .. unless you have double the free space it wont let you update i.e, when cataclysm came out .. i had to move my wow directory to another drive to update then put it back

... but since then i have taken back off the ssd as i only have a 80gb drive and more "important" programs are on it ..

i intend on upgrading soon to a larger drive .. I'm thinking wow might come back .. not sure tho ..

the performance increase isn't that big imo .. but then faster is faster isn't it

Your SSD is too small really. You should either get another 64gb and Raid 0 it, or get a Z68 motherboard to utilize intel's new technology to cache your HDD with your SSD.
Personally im using 120gb x2 Vertex 3 (raid 0) with read/write speeds of 1000mb/s. Definitely load first when playing games that require to load stuff from your drives. SSD costs bomb aye, but worth it ><
