the only thing it will help is load time. once the game is loaded into ram to be run, then your hdd has nothing to do with how it runs.

so you won't see better fps or anything like that, just less time waiting for a level to load.

i actually have a cs900 ssd myself. as you noted it's nice and cheap :)

i don't waste time on benchmarks and all that number chasing but it is noticeably faster than the spinning drives i also have. it's a nice entry level price to the fast world of ssd :)

i understand that. my new mobo has 2 nvme slots and eventually if i find a good enough sale, i'll try one out myself.

but they seem to have a lot of issues booting based on all the threads in the forum i see. so who knows what i'll actually end up doing

good luck and enjoy the new ssd :)
