Whether the difference is noticeable or not depends on the system. For the most part, most modern systems have enough RAM (8+GB) that a pagefile isn't really needed. If the pagefile barely gets any use (which is the likely scenario for a new PC), then performance would be practically the same regardless if it's placed on an SSD or HDD. However, if the system ever does use the pagefile, obviously, it'll be much faster if it's stored on the SSD. The system where I noticed the performance hit was running 32-bit Windows, had only 3GB RAM useable and was even running a couple of virtual machines so in my case, data was often being read from/written to the pagefile on the HDD which made things pretty laggy.
