    SSD drives are good for your operatng system to greatly reduce boot times, and large slow-loading applications, but they aren't really recommended for games (which are coded to run almost entirely in RAM except when saving or loading new levels).

    SSDs are not good choices for any program that does a lot of writing to disk, because SSDs can only handle a finite number of writes before losing the capacity to store data (a limitation that conventional HDDs don't have).
