    The immediately used information in any program running is loaded into RAM, unless you've exceeded the amount of RAM available in which case page files are formed on your HDD/SSD and the computer will move files between the page files and RAM as needed. For games, most information the game uses is in RAM. The only time you will really see any improvement is in loading of the game, initially, and in the loading of levels or other breaks in the game where something needs to load.

    An SSD will get you some good improvement, if you haven't got your games and applications on one.

    RAM DISK uses ram to cache data, much faster than just using SSDs. It also saves wear on you drives - it says, but then I read somewhere it writes it back to your drive after, but that can't be accurate... cuz it's stupid. If you can afford moar identical ram and your game is small enough to fit in the free portion, go for it! I've never used it, or my samsung rapid mode (which is pretty much the same i think) but I hear/read good things. It's new, see if there are any updated reviews or good instructions as to how to work it (like what parts to load etc) lol.
    Like I have no idea what you would do with the 50gb new wolfenstein, or the 40 odd gigs for full BF4, for example, maybe you just load the parts you need if that's possible...
    I'd look myself but I'm lazy and just blew all my money black friday, not getting more RAM till these outrageous prices drop (gogo DDR4!)

    Aww skunk beat me to the post, he seems to understand it better tho lol.

    I haven't tried using a RAMdisk yet, so not familiar in its use yet...I just know how it works.

    I wouldn't worry so much about SSD wear...the write and modify commands a typical consumer puts on an SSD just aren't enough to put significant wear on ALL of the cells (assuming a good wear-leveling strategy by the NAND controller) in an SSD (we are getting to a point where SATA will become obsolete before SSDs will wear out).

    Man you got that right. I was looking at the ROG USB3 boost. 170% of USB3 (apparently USB3 is a bit faster than SATA3 once you include the SATA overhead). But I know of nothing to connect to USB3 at 5gb/s (aside from a crazy fast SSD at it's top read speed), much less 170% of 5gb/s. SATA3 is pretty much saturated already. However seeing as I always find old HDDs with cool stuff I forgot about that you cannot get anywhere anymore (big brother *cough*, or was the cough sposed to come first?) so longevity is a sentimental spot for me, not just a quality thing. Are SSDs or HDDs better at retaining info when not in use for long periods of time?

    Apparently useless like USB boost if ur playing multiplayer. But know one really seems to know much, not that I looked very hard.
