This weekend, I finally got around to installing my solid state drive and moving my swtor installation to it.

OK, that’s a vicious lie.  My husband cracked open my PC case while I took a nap.  Not that I cannot install PC parts myself, because I totally can, but I was in an allergy-medicine-induced coma.

The difference is definitely noticeable. Loading time still is limited by the fact that I probably need to suck it up and buy a new processor.  But the change is worth the $50 that I spent on the drive.

I can’t wait to try it out next raid night (since I’m usually the last to zone in or come back after a wipe…)


Nerfing The Loading Screen Boss — 4 Comments

  1. I am so jealous!

    Of course, if I did spring for an SSD, I’d likely replace the hard drive in the mini-Reds’ laptop that they use for “school”. (Okay, they really do, but they also use it for MMOs.)

  2. Congratulations! I’m thinking that my PC might need an upgrade this year and shortening those loading screens would definitely be a big benefit. Getting tired of always being shouted at and having to say “I’m not loaded in yet!”.
