For example, a new video card may help in gaming, but with all other usage, it has no real bearing. Added memory may only help when you're doing something that requires more than you previously had. A new processor is great for intensive work, but hardly makes a difference in run-of-the-mill tasks. Yet an SSD boots faster, loads ALL apps faster, makes the system more responsive, and in laptops, it can increase battery life.
