So have you people choose SSD drive by $ cost ?
And if so, have you check it works in gaming ?

- I just assume, maybe in gaming you need right type SSD or else you could get wierd lag and stutters, who knows ?

I have now
TLC V-NAND

Samsung
V-NAND SSD 850 EVO 500GB
3D V-NAND SSD 850 120GB

...and I'm happy with those.

Before I had
MLC NAND

OCZ VTX3-25SAT3-120G
Vertex 3 120GB

...had to say, it was bad after few month. It gave micro freezing on PC.

    Samsung 860 as 'c' drive, used Magician to clone the o/s drive. Works perfectly.

    None in my own gaming rig. The only benefit to gaming is loading maps quicker. I have a small one in one of my PC's and it does help Windows run more snappy. But does nothing for gaming performance.

    I would have put one in this, but opted for more storage instead. I use this for more than gaming.

    Almost any SSD would benefit loading-times in all situations (os, games, what-ever).

    But games should run OK on a HDD, except for longer loading times between maps/levels. The FPS shouldn't be affected in general. Unless the game reads a lot of map/texture-data while playing, there should'nt be any difference in-game, and I don't think BF1 would be affected in-game.

    I'm using a Samsung 970 Pro for system (and BF1) and a Samsung 850 Pro for second drive (older games mostly). I've used the 850 Pro for system and BF1 ealier on, but cannot say the loading times has been reduced by much (nothing noticable), even though the 970 reads up to 7 times faster...

    yes, SSD not affect to fps. But if drive not handle small read/write sequence very fast, you could get those small micro freeze while gaming...
    I was just curious, if anyone have now this problem, you could check and mention here your drive type here. :neutral:

    I played on a 10 year old 5400 rpm drive while I RMA'd my WD blue. The maps took forever to load, but no issues actually running the game

    I got a cheap nasty 120gb from ebuyer.
    I think it was only £26 lol but I can’t fault it at all.
    Am just about to order the 240gb version now.

    Rocking 2x Samsung 850 EVO 250Gb's; one for the OS, one for games.

    I have BF1 on my hard drive and, because of the timer in between rounds, it doesn't get you into the next map any slower than a SSD.
