I started having this problem since 2.0.something (I quit D3 during 1.8 (everything was fine as I recall) and came back 1 week before ROS (loading times got really long). I could probably get a new laptop, but since D3 is the only game that I play and apart from gaming everything works fine I thought I could probably get more RAM (I have 4GB) and replace my HD with SSD. Do you think it would help?
I have no performance issues at all except everything that is "loading" related E.G. entering/leaving games(30 sec), rifts(25 sec), Grifts(25 sec), going to next level(20 sec), teleporting(20 sec), etc.
My fps is steadily between 45-55 very well playable but the long loads are really making my D3 experience painfull...
So to repeat the question could loading be improved by switching to an SSD and maybe a little more RAM?? (I already have 6gig RAM).
