No...your standing in the instance...waiting for the rest of your Group...unless your grinding low level instances for drops or something along those lines.

If your pulling stuff before the rest of your group you won't be in a group very long -_-

and again the OP is really...

Here is my reason for leaving MMOs on the HDD...

You rarely load zones in...a HDD is more than adequate to handle loading things on the fly while in an MMO.

Now FPS on the other hand like Crysis and especially Half-Life 2

Holy CRAP! HL2 loading stages! with the SSD its great its almost like you didn't even realize you just made it to the next part of the map which just loaded up.

Correct me if I am wrong dead wrong...but WoW is 30GB and that is a lot of static space being sucked up to load an instance about 20 seconds faster than the raid leader or your MT. -_-
Quit WoW a long time ago out of boredom and because the community is full of ******* and 10 year olds. LoTRO is about half that size.

Do you know how long it takes to start LoTRO? I am in game and down the road by the time my GF gets in.

33 pages of ranting back and fourth about SSDs lol..

All i can say is i paid $100 for my Corsair F60 and i love the dam thing. its fast and its not even SATA3 its just a SATA2 but oh man does it load windows in a flash!!! it comes down to how many of us actually OWN SSD setups that really know the difference that it makes!! you try opening WORD and be typing in 1second on your regular HDD lol

I say its an upgrade that people can perform later on in their systems because good SSDs in large sizes are pretty expensive. Look at the Intel 510 250GB SSD its $615!!!!

with LESS then $600 you can get a 2600K, Asus P8P67 PRO, and 8GB of Gskill RIPJAWS X DDR3 1600 RAM.....

see the point?? people would much rather upgrade to this setup then spend it on a large capacity high end SSD

Yes, I'm calling people claiming SSD's are not worth it (Those people who spended lot's of cash on expensive CPU's, mobo's, mem and graphics cards), who never have tried one - Ignorant. Simple as that.
ok, i can agree with that

Do you play LoTRO? Because you don't seem to understand instances I am talking about.

I agree the OP hasn't really contributed much to the conversation but he did start it and many, many people have joined.

Do you know how long it takes to start LoTRO? I am in game and down the road by the time my GF gets in.

I was already at the end of the instance by the time my wife was in game...and that was before SSD.

but her P4 still booted faster than my C2Q build

Both had Raid 0 WD raptors as boot and game drives

Same speed ram

Really I already agreed its a fun thing to have, but your point about loading an instance is a lose/lose situation...you need your fellow players to run the instance...

I award you points for the speedy load times, but they are useless in the context you provided.

Also I am sure your GF was complaining you were way ahead and not waiting for her...and if you say otherwise your a liar, because it happens to me all the time

No, not a fan of LoTR...there is only one return and it's not of the ring, it's of the Jedi...

LoTR is god awful...possibly the most mind numbing trilogy to ever be conceived(and hell I tried to watch it I got about a little over an hour in before I passed out...and then I woke up and it WAS STILL ON)...but that is another discussion.

If I do not understand your concept of instances...you are using the wrong terminology.

SSD's make sense to me as the hard drive is the biggest bottleneck of a system. Why get a super nice setup with the best SB cpu and best motherboard I can buy and the best video card and then get super bottlenecked with a hard drive instead of using an ssd?

I see plenty of people with these setups with only harddrives in their sig!

Even the price difference between a 2500K and a 2600K would be enough to buy a good enough SSD!

SSD's is really a whole different world VS harddrives.

My guess is people who have not tried a good SSD for OS/programs/games are not really aware of the tremendous difference there really is VS a harddrive.

I'm just shocked seeing all these overclocked Sandybridge setups using harddrives. And just ignoring the one thing that will make a system really super fast - The SSD...
I dont really think that a HDD is a bottle neck I have noticed apart from loading times, no other difference in games with my SSDs compared to the HDD.

SSDs are for bragging, fast bootup, and maxing out windows score.

I've certainly go no argument there. I'd be running ssd too if gaming was my rig's primary role.

Oh, no I get it. It's just when I read that, I get a flashback of "waiting around a few seconds for the rest of the team to load in".....something I'm sure every mmo player has experienced at some time or another. To which the first thought is, I load in first......so I can wait for everyone else. I'm not trying to argue with or mock you, just saying it was a funny thought.
