So unless you cant play some games because of your current graphics card, I would go for the SSD.
Ya I can still, surprisingly, play games at decent settings (new ones I mean). Like, Bad Company 2...I can run it at High Settings, Medium Shadows (the 4870 sucks with shadows), and 2xAA. Pretty cool...but framerate is around 30fps avg. I know that I will still get an SSD maybe sometime this year though. It's kind of a fight though, between upgrading RAM or SSD first...

I'll be done with my 4890 vs 6950 benchmarks tonight.. this should give you something to go by when considering the 6950.
Sweet. I'll definitely give them a look. Ya I'm still on the thought that whichever GPU has a great deal (ie lower price), I'll grab it...whether it's the 560 ti or the 6950. Hope one comes soon.

RAM upgrades are going to give you CONSIDERABLY less bang for your buck than an SSD upgrade. Your current RAM is more than adequate and once you upgrade your SSD and GPU you would probably not be able to see a difference with new RAM.

Okay cool. Ya I was thinking if I sold my DDR2, it would almost be like an exchange for 'better' RAM anyways; that is, going from G.skill 1066 to DDR3 1600. But I'm sure I'd love an SSD. I'm tempted to just get one---it's quite a bit less than a $200 GPU, and I really would like to use my $25 Newegg new-buyer promo code before it expires on the 20th.
