Solid State Drive for your computer is a good investment. The typical drive that most people have in their computer these days even today, is still for many of us a mechanical drive. Most new computers still come with either Hybrid mechanical or just straight mechanical. Both are more or less a bottleneck for the performance of your computer. Your machine will only be as fast as your hard drive can read and write. You may have 16 Gigs worth of ram. Chances are you are not able to use as much of that ram because of the speed of your mechanical drive. If you replace you're mechanical drive for solid state drive, you should see a dramatic change in performance. Your computer is much more responsive. Windows boots faster and game levels load in a snap. The difference between using an Solid State and an HDD for your primary storage is like night and day, and once you take the Solid State plunge there's no going back. If you still have windows 7 you may want to consider moving to Windows 10, it is much faster. I recommend full install, not upgrade to Windows 10. The upgrades work well sometimes, sometimes not.
