After few hours of playing on new disk i can write some words about the performance.
I didnt test fps, because when i test it on old drive it was about 70-90, so this has no sense. In game it was rather what my eyes saw, so that was very subjective test.
Lets start with Windows Experience Index.
My old drive: Samsung HD502HJ 7200rpm 500 GB SATA II was score of 5.9.
New drive: OCZ Vertex 4 was score of 7.0 --> Keep in mind that this is result on SATAII
After few minutes of searching internet i found some results of close related OCZ SSDs and they was between 7.7 and 7.9 for SATAIII so i didnt use full potential of Vertex 4.
Windows of course is loading a bit faster and so Diablo. But these are secondary benefits. Silence too.
But, let's get to the substance. After about 9 hours of playing alone and with party i can say that stuttering is almost gone. I can say, that now about 80%-90% of stuttering disappeared. They happen less often and they are much shorter then before.
Summing it all. I am very happy with the changes HDD to SSD

Ok, i ordered Vertex 4 today. Price was about 110 Euros (459 polish zlotych). Hopefully tomorow or the day after i had it in my hands. At the weekend i will try to write something about improvements it made in my computer and Diablo 3.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Quote from Oxidysthough realistically, i suspect your issue is the lack of either RAM or video memory. leaning more toward video memory.
My comp specs is: 4GB of RAM, Phenom II X4 955 and Radeon 5850 1GB, so definitly problem is not there. I suspect that problem is on hard drive or my internet connection (Although 8Mb speed is definitly enough, there could be some stability problems). When i mount SSD will be one possibility less :-)

I want to change my old standard HDD 7200 RPM to SSD. My choice is OCZ Vertex 4 128GB. I read spec. of this drive and it is on SATA3. I of course have SATA2. Actually on old drive i have some problem with loading textures and from time to time my screen freeze for some short amount of time.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
My question is, if i buy new drive, do i see any improvement in smoothness of game on SATA2 (rest of my computer is good enough to play smooth on highest details)? And how much i lose in performance to SATA3?

Ok, thanks for advices, i surely try to apply them. But now i have one more question.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I tried Energy twister / storm chaser and i have one thing on my mind. Why not Mistral Breeze? Is something wrong with lower cost of using Energy twister? Or maybe this rune change some mechanics on spell?

At the moment i dont have gear to make whole critical mass build work. I slowly move to this build but for now i want only to recharge diamond skin right after it ends. So, what critical hit % chance i need to make it work? For now i have 12 mln gold to spend.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I have 1,4 attack per second and 36,5% crit chance.
This is my profile:

Ok, i apologize. You have right. I just overread. Its beacause i read to many times people moaning about not finding gear to sell. Once again, apologize to author of topic.Posted in: Theorycrafting and Analysis

Why do you think, something is wrong? People dont find worse gear than before. It work different way. We all have great gear and dont want to buy trash. Look at hardcore players, if they find gear it is more often worth of selling. Players just die there with good gear.Posted in: Theorycrafting and Analysis
Soon it will come to this, we only look for legendaries. If you dont find legendary or set item you just dont take it from ground.
Its almost impossible to solve this problem. If Blizzard month by month give us better gear, game become boring and with dood gear you maybe even 1hit Diablo.

Probably beacause you always hit enemy without master level kiting.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
