Hi all,

I have $300 to upgrade my system and I would like everyone's thoughts. My current rig is a

Athlon/Phenom 7750 BE @3.2
GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P
Nvidia GTS 250
4 gig DDR2 @ 1066
PSU 550

I would like to re-use the GPU and main board, despite it being a bit out-dated. My gaming isn't too intense, Starcraft 2/ Diablo 3 (eventually)... along those lines. What would be the most noticeable?

CPU upgrade and an SSD?

X4 965 for $130 or a X6 1090T BE for $170

and

Crucial M4 for $90 or a Kingston SSDNOW V+100 for $140

any other ideas?

Thanks!
