Like a memory stick, there are no moving parts to an SSD. Rather, information is stored in microchips. Conversely, a hard disk drive uses a mechanical arm with a read/write head to move around and read information from the right location on a storage platter. This difference is what makes SSD so much faster.

SSD will decrease your boot time, decrease the time to open up games and programs and installing.
It will not increase game's frames per second.
SSD's have a response time of about .07 Milliseconds.
Hard drives have a response time of about starting at 7-8 milliseconds all the way up to 30+ depending on which drive is used.
If you take those into account, the SSD drive already communicates 100X faster (minnimum) than a conventional HDD. You will notice your system is snappier with an SSD compared to a HDD.
