    SSD is a kind of flash, and doesn't perform at all like RAM. It's similar in that there's no rotational delay. Writes tend to be staggered so that each bit gets a comparable number of writes (which leads to much worse fragmentation, especially in write-heavy environments). You might get decent performance off of the SSD initially, but performance will likely degrade over time given a balanced or write-heavy workload.
