Load times will be faster on an SSD over a typical platter drive.

Exactly. Load times will be better and if games are needing to load textures from the drive then it will be faster for that as well.

Here are my times Samsung EVO SSD VS HDD.
I did it with a stopwatch and each test I did 4 times.

All test were from system bootup.

HDD Raptor AHCI
PC startup 50 seconds to active.

crysis 3 startup 1:07 minute.

crysis 3 loading multiplayer map 41 seconds.

BF3 loading origin and web browser 44 seconds.

BF3 loading multiplayer map 1:40 minute.

Battlefield: Bad Company loading multiplayer map 19 seconds.

Samsung 840 EVO SSD AHCI
PC startup 30 seconds to active.

crysis 3 startup 46 seconds.

crysis 3 loading multiplayer map 25 seconds.

BF3 loading origin and web browser 14 seconds.

BF3 loading multiplayer map 37 seconds.

Battlefield: Bad Company loading multiplayer map 16 seconds.

You won't get better performance in games, that is video card and CPU also memory however you will have faster load times with a fresh boot aslo when your memory is clear.
