    Do you mean SSD Drive? or SD Card? According to your GPU(Integrated Intel 5500), you won't be able to play much of any of the recent games. You can probably play Fortnite(low-medium settings), and TF2(low-medium settings), but you won't really be able to play something like Farcry 5 or Ark, too well or at all. I could be wrong but that is what I found.

    Your Lenovo E50-80 laptop appears to have this Intel processor and graphic device:

    I'm not a hardware/gaming expert, but it's obvious your laptop doesn't have the "horsepower" it needs for a quality gaming experience.

    It will help you load games faster however you will not be able to play games any more than you can now.
    Laptops are NOT designed for gaming unless you get one of the gaming laptops from asus or dell/alienware; those are made to run games.
