I have been looking to upgrade the hard drive on my computer. When doing performance tests my current HD appears to be the weakest link and lately my load times for games and such has been pretty bad. My current HD is an older WD blue 500gb.
One of the things I have noticed is the solid state drives have been coming down in price. Are these supposed to be faster than traditional drives? I have tried googling reviews for them unfortunately I kept turning up articles from 3+ years ago. Is anybody using them for gaming PC's right now or are they more for backup?
