Don't think so. SSD's are already fast enough, buy a new one and see for yourself. Besides, the three year old ones were awful compared to today's awesomeness. Most notably, performance was known to degrade over time until many circumstances were performing worse than HDDs.

1 new one. Also, wait until this latest generation is released, if you can. Intel has just officially announced it's next-gen, and most of the latest and greatest SSD's will be releasing between March-May. Big performance boosts are expected. So if you are patient, you can get a big jump in performance instead of buying end-of-life products.
