  • Need help, is this a good ssd?

    First of all im new to ssd's.
    Now this would be for a laptop, so would this even work? If I do get it would it be that much better for gaming or would i just be able to shave off ten seconds booting up my laptop?

    For the most part a SSD is not going to increase your computers game performance. It will help load applications and files faster. IF the game does a lot of file loading it may help reduce jerkyness during that usually short period. An example would be a game with a large and detailed game world/map that cannot or for some reason is not all stored in system memory.

    ALSO the product you linked is an external SSD, generally you would look for an internal one if you plan on running the main system off of it.

      Thanks, didnt know if it would help that much for gaming. Two hundred dollars isnt worth it for me either, so I will will just stick with what I have. :)

        For the most part I agree with Name's assessment...except if you an ARMA player. The ARMA world is so big in game that rendering it really works the HD. In the ARMA community an SSD is a must upgrade to optimize playability of that title. ARMA's a resource hog on all fronts but especially on the HD and CPU.

            Go to www.crucial.com
            They provide RAM but since a few months ago they began providing Solid State Drives.
            Do a system scan and it'll tell you the best one for you. I got a 128 GB 6GB transfer Rate SSD for €180,
            Where as in the retailer I used to work in as a tech, we had 60GB OCZ Solid State Drives for about €250
