Which SSD is good?
SSD's are usually used with the OS and a few applications/games that will fit. The rest of your data would go on another mechanical drive.

The I7 930 overclocks very well so upgrading your CPU is probably a waste of money as pointed out previously. Most games are GPU intensive. A Radeon 7950 would be a decent choice using the same two GPU power connectors you're using now, but overall, it uses less power at idle and under load. Check out anandtech.com under the "Bench" heading and compare your card to the 7000 series Radeons (assuming you're staying with AMD). Good Luck.

An SSD is an excellent choice and I wouldn't run my OS without one. But, it will not make your game play better, it will make it load faster but the play will be the same.

Hi I purchased an Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II Top Graphics Card (4GB GDDR5, PCI Express 3.0, DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI, Display Port, Nvidia 3D Vision Surround but, it was DoA so they sent an other that was also DoA, so I purchased an EVGA GTX 670.
The EVGA 670 was not better than my 5870, there was absolutely no improvement, in my gameplay. EVGA Technical Support said it was a software issue without elaborating.
i purchase a Z77 board and a i7 3770K, just to see if it was okay or not.
Can any body help me with this, to see why tyhere's no improvement?
