Need some advise on an upgrade Motherboard or ssd

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So heres what im thinking, i've had my moyherboard for a while now and i was thinking of upgrading it to a 990fx for AM3+ sata 6.0 usb 3.0 all that good stuff. but i know the weakest link in my system is my harddrive since i have no ssd. so would my money be better spent on an ssd upgrade or a motherboard upgrade. i plan on keeping my 955 x4 for a little longer, any model suggestions would be nice. my specs are under my green machine rig

I say SSD because 1090FX boards will be out later this year sometime in Q3. Switching mobo's won't really have that big of a noticeable difference like SSD will.
