1TB 5400RPM+16GB SSD versus 1TB 5400RPM hard drive?

What I want to know is what will be the difference in CAPABILITY and PERFORMANCE? I am looking to buy a GAMING computer and I wanna know if a 1TB 5400RPM+16GB SSD is worth the extra money as opposed to a 1TB 5400RPM hard drive. Thanks!

    If your wanting to put a Microsoft O.S. on a 16 gig SSD Vista or above you will need to by a bigger drive 40 gigs or above. I also would go with a 7,200 r.p.m. drive if you want faster load speeds, the higher the r.p.m.,s the faster apps will load. Performance wise S.S.D.'s load faster, create less heat, and last much longer than other drives I own 3 S.S.D.'s. Hope this helps.
