So all of this hype gave rise to a very important question, does SSD effect gaming performance? Well I'm here again to solve this one for you so just sit back and read through this small article.
It depends what you mean by 'performance.' If you're having framerate issues, a solid state drive isn't what you need. Your GPU is is the key component there, and upgrading to an SSD will not make a difference. The point of installing games on an SSD is the drastic reduction in load times, which occurs because the data transfer speed of SSDs (over 400 MB/s) is significantly higher than that of HDDs, which generally deliver under 170 MB/s.
SSDs can also reduce 'hitching' in open world games likes GTA V or Assassin's Creed series. 'Hitching' is what I call a brief pauses in games when they can't pull assets from the hard drive fast enough to keep up with the player.
There are some general quality of life improvements to be had, too—install your OS on an SSD, for instance, and you'll get to your desktop a lot quicker when you boot. If all that sounds peachy, I recommend getting as big of an SSD as you can afford, installing Windows and your games on it, and keeping a bigger, secondary HDD for general storage.
So here it was a short and simple guide to make your computing life a tad bit easier and simpler with less fuss and more facts. Do leave a comment if you have any queries or want to add anything in here that I might've missed.
