SSDs will help flight simulations load quicker, but unless you have a horribly old system, it has been my experience that they will make very little difference in the game itself. There's generally no FPS, perceived smoothness, or texture loading benefits once you've started your flight when comparing SSDs against traditional hard drives.

 

With that in mind, make it a priority to use the SSD first for your operating system and daily applications. It makes such a huge impact on your day-to-day computer use that squandering it for flight simulation purposes alone does not make sense.

 

If there's enough room left over, you can install your sims to the SSD as well - but keep in mind that simulation installations can grow pretty big. With scenery and airplanes, flightsim install directories can grow to 100, even 200GB or larger with big photo scenery libraries.

 

When I first bought an SSD I did so specifically for flight simulations, and blindly installed my sims to the fast drive. It loaded faster all right, but that was about it. When I changed this around and reinstalled Windows to boot off the SSD, holy heck. It made such a difference on my day-to-day computing, I can't imagine having it any other way.

 

Good luck!

Yes ... the 4Gb data drive is where all your sims and add-ons should be installed.

As I posted before, I installed a 1 TB SSD.  Windows 7, FSX, REX, ASN, 4 Fly Tampa airports + 3 other add on airports,  all the PMDG airplanes = 105 Gb.

So the 500 Gb is plenty if you are using this for FSX only.
