In my opinion they are very quick and worth spending money on them.

a SATA SSD provides about triple the r/w speed of an HDD.
a NVMe SSD will have about 10x - 20x r/w speed of an HDD.
Your mileage will vary but you will see a massive increase in load times etc.

depends on what your current motherboard is capable of, if it can support an NVMe drive, definitely get one. its lightning fast. if it can only support sata connections, then definitely still get a sata ssd.

either way its gonna be a huge upgrade in terms of loading, but i advise getting at least a 1tb ssd because these days games are massive, and if you want to benefit from loading times from any games you play currently, you need the space to do so :).

I do think they are a huge improvement, the loading times are very quick. If you are unsure, here is an article about SSD which gives a good overview as I think. I hope it can help you. It's in german but you can easily translate it with some programms.
