Hey all! I am thinking of adding a Solid State Drive(SSD) to my build. I have been playing Assassin's Creed Origins on pretty much Max settings and I see my performance monitor showing my disk usage like stuck at 100% and my CPU not far behind it. I have an Intel i7-6700k CPU, gtx 1070 graphics card, Asrock fatality z170 gaming k6 motherboard, g.skill ripjaws V series 16gb ddr4 sdram 3200. I don't know the hard drive, I can tell later tonight. Would I benefit in the struggling areas by getting a SSD? I looked at the reviews for 4 different SSDs and they seem to be more stress and hassle than beneficial, failing only after a couple months or slowing down after a couple months usage. Another I seen about it has like a 1000 hour lifespan? I'd kill it in a month.

like anything, early adopters had teething experiences.  I have lots of ssd's in my house, never had a failure.  Like you, I played games (battlefield) that are hard drive heavy.  I would recommend Samsung 850.

SSD is good for reducing load times and you will experience significant improvement while playing hard drive intensive games. I'll also recommend you to go for Samsung 850 series Evo SDD drives because of my personal experiences.
