Well, your English is certainly atrocious, as well as your grasp of computer chess.
From what I can decipher from your ramblings, you seem to be saying that having an SSD is more important than having a fast Processor, which is absolutely incorrect
I am running an I7 3930K overclocked to 4.8 Ghz with 32 GB Corsair RAM and I win nearly all my games and a few draws.
I have disabled Virtual Memory in Windows as I have plenty of RAM, so there is no question of swapping to the Hard Disk.
I also have an SSD which I purchased because of rumors of better computer chess performance with SSD, but I can certify that there is absolutely no gain in performance with SSD
.Gain in performance may only be seen in case you have insufficient RAM
like 2-4 GB.
In case you didn't know, RAM IS FASTER THAN SSD, so having plenty of good, fast RAM is any day more important than an SSD.
You friend is probably a bigger noob than you and is losing because of improper settings in his Engine Configuration or because of insufficient RAM and NOT because he has only a HDD!
And if his Power Supply is insufficient, his PC will simply CRASH, before he can even actually lose to you
