I currently have Win 7 64 installed on a pair of WD Velociraptors (VR150M) configure in RAID 0.
The system is pretty fast as it stands (It boots to my desktop in 20 to 30 seconds).
But I am still waiting a minute or two for some games to load (BF3, WoT, etc)
I would like to go faster!

Does anyone have any idea how much faster I should expect loads to be if were to replace my two Velociraptors with a quality SSD (like the Samsung 840 Pro)? Would Win7/Apps load a bit faster or noticeably faster?

Will you get a performance improvement? Oh yes. But it's not really load times so much as response time. Moving to an SSD makes the system feel snappier.

As for games, it depends on the game. I saw noticeable improvements with Bioshock Infinite, but I saw almost no performance improvement for Skyrim.
