    Hmm, SSD vs. Newer GPU... Both offering significant performance increases for certain things. It's hard for me to decide. I mean, I don't game as much as I used to because my GPU's feeling a little dated. So I mostly surf and listen to music. Which makes SSD a bit overkill, but that's the very definition of a gaming computer. But having quicker boots will breath new life into this old computer and get me to use it more frequently.

    Intel Core 2 Duo (6850)
    Gigabyte GA-X38T-DQ
    Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS
    OCZ 4 GB DDR 3 1600 RAM (4 x 1GB)
    WD Raptor 150 x 2
    WD 1TB x1
    ATI PCI-E TV Tuner
    PC P&C 750 Watt PSU
    22" Samsung
    Windows 7

    I'm saving and looking forward to selling my PC to get my I5 750 + Asus P7P55-M + 2x2 GB Gskill Ripjaws. I'm not sure what video card I'm getting, since the market is full of great cards. I don't know why I want such a great computer, I will probably end up playing the old game I've always loved. LOL.
