ssd read amd write questions

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hello
I'd like to have a ssd, 256gb, and i would use it for windows and gaming.
I understand why I need good reading speeds (samsung 840 pro, ocz vertex 4...) but do I need good writing speeds if I don'r edit or record anything?

The lower the write speed, the longer it will take for games to save as well as any other type of writing that may occur while you're just doing your thing. Even just browsing the internet can be slower with slower write speeds because every click requires multiple simultaneous downloads so that you can see the web page and all of its elements. There are many writes that happen without us ever really realizing it. For example, watching a YouTube video. The video has to download, so that's a bunch of writing right there. ;)

Well write speeds do and don't matter.

Write speeds matter as a whole for reasons that have been listed above, and several others as well.

Do write speeds matter all that much in terms of SSDs? Ehhhhh not really. By the time you get into the 200+ MBs write speeds, you aren't going to notice a difference in write speeds between two different drives. ONLY FOR GAMING THOUGH!!!! As soon as you get into media editing, write speeds matter a lot.
