Don't make the external your primary storage drive.

Your games will not benefit from SSD. If you're not planning on rebooting every 15 minutes you will not benefit from windows loading times :/

Never have understood peoples logic behind wanting better windows loading times on a desktop.
I don't know about other people, but I turn on my desktop and it doesn't turn off unless i have to restart for a program install or I leave my house for a few days.

having an SSD in a laptop makes sense.

He is actually right in a way.
Most games won't benefit from an SSD, except loading times. But even then it won't make that much of a difference.

Having lots of ram with paging off makes a bigger difference.

Doesn't sound like you've used one before.

Or not. You still have exactly the same mechanical bottleneck as you did before, only this time you retain the data a bit longer for future access. First access is still just as slow and shows no gain.

I have used one before, it made a small difference, totally not worth spending hundreds to improve loading times by a meer few seconds.

What do you mean or not?

waiting 30 seconds to load in world of tanks with 4gb of ram regardless of paging, to loading instantly with 8gb of ram without paging.
how does that not make show a difference. and for only 85 dollars, compared to 300 for a good SSD.

$500 says you aren't over 50% memory utilization when using that game.
Therefore, absolutely no difference between 4g and 8g, page file or not.

Im not claiming anything. I am telling you the facts. I LOAD FASTER.

plain and simple real world facts. I load faster then I did before, and the onlything that has changed is i have more ram.
So go ahead and tell me why that isn't the reason for the change.

And you owe me 500 dollars, I was using about 60% of my ram.

Do you pay your own electricity bill? Having a desktop computer just sitting there running is a huge waste of energy.
