    No. If you do it correctly, you won't need to format the hard disk. Just make sure that you're installing a compatible RAM.

And if i will install the game in it the loading time will be slow?

    If you set to have your C:/ (that is, your OS) in your SSD, then your apps and games (from the Store - if that's what you mean) will be installed in your SSD (since that's your C:); but if you're referring to ordinary games from CD or online installers, then you can always choose where to install it - but the recommended is this:
    - All programs in C: - your SSD
    - All documents and files (Music, Videos, Pictures, Word files, etc.) in your HDD.

    This way, program performance will be a lot faster.

    There are a lot of what-ifs in that scenario.

    Games will load somewhat faster from an SSD than from an HDD, but it all depends on how big the game is, how much data it is trying to load during game play.

    You can get a 500 GB SSD for ~$150, which would give you a decent amount of storage. What games are you looking to install?

    If it's Steam, you can set both C and D drive to hold your library and then depending on game, you can elect to install it to either. I ended up putting most things on D drive (the 1TB SSHD) as other than CSGO and Simcity, I don't really play games that often to justify using up my valuable SSD :) Besides, the other games I paly aren't that intensive on constantly loading but as others mentioned, different games will see differing levels of benefit from installation on an SSD.
