I put this here because its more hardware based than gaming (I think) ????
I have a 120 gb Corsair SSD----

I have COD Advanced Warfare coming in the mail & I'm impressed with
everything I have saw on youtube for GTA 5 for pc----- released at the end of
this month--
I believe my COD AW (6 DVD disks) is going to be in the 55 GB storage range--
I have saw spectulation that GTA 5 for pc is going to be 60 GB and up
for storage
my SSD shows 61 GBs free--& my HHD shows 196 GBs free----
so obviously I can't put neither game on my SSD----

with a game that large & detailed that keeps going back to the HHD to constantly reload as U move thru
the game

will my SSD / HHD cause a noticeable bottleneck / lag as the game plays---
or should it play at high settings with noproblem even though the game is on my storage drive---

960gtx graphics
8 GB Corsair ram
so that part shouldn't be a problem I hope

Games/software typically only access the HDD when loading, or while gaming between levels. The HDD speed doesn't affect playback, it only affects those times when the game or a level loads.

Well your specs are somewhat decent, so as long as the game installer allows you to install wherever you want you should be good.
Have fun!
