I have found a 256 GB SD card at a fairly cheap price and have been debating using this as additional space or even to install games to. Does anyone know the preformance impact that I may find while using a SD card vs my internal 7200 RPM HD. The SD card is a PNY Elite SDXC Class 10 (90MB/s). For comparison I have included a screenshot of a benchmark test one of my HD's (both are identical). Based on the benchark test, I don't necessarily see anything that screems a huge degradation to read/write speeds.
My rig, in case this would have bearing:
I7 - 2670QM @2.2 Ghz
12 GB RAM
Geforce GTX 560M - 3GB

I know I could go the route of replacing my 2nd drive, but would rather hold out for something in the 3-4TB range when laptop HD's come out at that size (and are a fair price). Let me know your opinions.
