    Levels and the game will load faster. And the computer in general becomes more reactive.

    I would have to agree. It will have faster reaction time and your computer will have an overall faster response. I love my SSD, I will never go back to a regular hard drive.:):apple:

    Love SSDs, and the M4 is a great choice.

    But just to be clear, it will have 0 effect on your actual in-game performance. Levels will load faster, your computer will perform better all around, but it won't make games perform better in terms of frame rates or in-game experience.
