Games, Run from SSD or Disc HD?

Postby BrightSide » Sun Dec 15, 2013 1:19 pm

Is it better to keep my programs and storage on one HD and run my games with the other? If so which for which?

I tend to have all of my files on one HDD and programs games etc on the OS drive.

I have always done this just for data recovering purposes. I think it would slow certain games a little having to look in a different drive. But to be honest I doubt the difference would really be noticed.

I agree with Neptune, I dont think you would notice a difference unless you have one SSD and one regular HD, then you would notice a bit in loading times.
