Anyways, I was just showing a few links giving game load times. Some games load much faster and some are nearly identical to mechanical drives, but none are slower. I wish I had an SSD back when I played EQ2. Fast zoning was such an advantage!
They do load faster. maybe you didn't notice that I put the word "much" in there, or you were thinking something else at the time. I saw a benchmark where an SSD loaded crysis level 8% faster than a velociraptor. 4 seconds faster which is faster but not much faster. Would you even notice the difference in load times?
Anyway, the point is you can and should put your favorite games on your new SSD. But don't sweat it if you can't fit all your favorite games on your small expensive SSD with limited room because you'll still get pretty good performance even if you have to keep it on your HDD. And heck if you have raided HDDs you probably won't notice a difference in load times at all...
