    An SSD won't speed up the frame-rate, it only speeds up the reading and writing of data to the drive as compared to a mechanical hard drive. To increase the frame-rate you will need a better Graphics card; and possibly a faster Cpu.

    What is the full model name of the HP desktop ?

    Sorry for the late reply I think it is
    HP 260-p130na Slimline Desktop PC - Black
    Sorry I had to copy and paste that, I still need an sad card to speed up the game as it loads new areas

    I also forgot to say I use a lot of mods ( about 1k) on my game and intend to use more

    To get the most out of an SSD you should put Windows and the game onto it but that is quite complicated.

    Your best bet would be to get a friend who is into computers to help you with this, or go to a computer shop (a small one not one of the big chains) and ask them if they could install your game (and possibly Windows) onto an SSD if you buy it from them.

    That's probably true but I would check there is a spare Sata port on the motherboard.
