Well I came in just over $1050 HERE. With a 256gb SSD.

Apparently you already only have a 250gb HDD so long as you aren't downloading terabytes of movies its more than enough. I personally have one about the size with everything but the kitchen sink on it and I'm at about half.

Aside from individual retailers clearing out the old stuff actual market value doesn't really go down on processors.

At least Memory Express and NCIX have pretty good price match policies, exploiting them can save some decent money. Especially when something goes on sale elsewhere for cheap. You might also be able to save some money by getting a cpu/mobo combo but they tend to not be that great recently. I've been half watching as I'm getting the itch. SSDs also go on sale alot and a good 250gb model can be had for about $150.

You could also reuse you PSU and case and put the money towards something like a pricier GPU.

We also have our own club eh. For all the hosers out there. the link is in my sig.

Not in games, it might reduce load times some however. The main reason for them is to use as a OS/App drive, this improves computer performance and boot times significantly. And they are not easily added after for this purpose... this means you have to reinstall Windows on the SSD, as well as the apps, and then you have your other installation of Windows on the storage drive, which is a pain to get off.

OP since you don't need the OS, adding an SSD is a smart choice. I would recommend the Samsung EVO 120GB with a WD Caviar Blue 1TB storage drive.
