Eh, it doesn't really help that much. Really it only reduces the loading times by little bit.
I've got all my games stored on a 7200RPM HDD and everything runs fine at maximum settings.
Said by someone whos probably never used a high end SSD before.
I get zero hesitation and literally zero waiting no matter what application I am launching. When I install or uninstall a program...Boom. Done.
Installing Windows 7 on a bare SSD from a USB stick took about 5 minutes from start until you are sitting at the desktop ready to work. Try that with a conventional HDD. Might be able to read the paper, do a sudoku, take a leak and boil yourself a cup of tea.
Don't make assumptions just because someone disagrees with you, it comes off as extremely arrogant.
I prefer not to bloat my SSD with crap that doesn't need it. Yes, I'll put very intense games on it, but it doesn't need it.
I can play Skyrim on maximum settings with >40 mods, a lot of which are HD textures and lighting, and it's on my HDD. Wait 3-5 seconds when changing areas.
