What find of speed do you want to be increased? Like gaming ?
Which that components, you should get a decent speed
If you want speed for gaming, you should get a better GPU

Getting a better graphics card will help you when running games. When you're not running games, the integrated graphics on your processor will be just fine.

You may want to instead, look at the specs for your 60 GB SSD drive. Often, drives of that size do not have as many NAND chips on board to tie to the controller, resulting in less speed than larger models. Think of the NAND chips as individual storage devices in a RAID configuration, although other factors also come into play, such as the type of memory chips being used and the controller that they are connected to.

Plus, when running an SSD near to it's full capacity, they have a tendency to slow down. This is another reason to consider looking for a larger SSD.

You cant make your OS smaller. Literally the only thing that will noticeably speed up your PC is having a SSD big enough for your OS... AND all your programs you most frequently use. If all your programs are on there, then there is very little to speed it up. (Apart from as above said, a more modern better quality SSD) You do kinda get what you pay for.

Get a new SSD such as 120GB or Higher
Go with samsung 840 or Plextor

Also, get windows 8. It increases speed for system boot and opening programs
But mainly your storage for your C drive (SSD is recomended)

not enough to replace it if you have a fully functioning copy of windows 7 home premium or better.

Have to agree with drtoast, while Windows 8 is faster than Windows 7, unless you're in the market for a new Windows license already, the cost / benefit ratio based on the difference in speed from 7 to 8 is not worth your money. If you want to try 8, I would recommend waiting for the Windows Blue, 8.1 refresh that is due out later in the year, as it is scheduled to have an upgrade license for $40, which should minimize the overall licensing costs. :-)

Window is is faster in term for opening applications and system boot
Windows 7 is slightly slower in those, but slightly faster in term for gaming. Depends on some games

I would like to respectfully disagree with you, Rayne604.

Tom's did an article addressing whether Windows 8 is faster than Windows 7 for games:

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/windows-8-gaming-performa...

The results, while nothing seemingly significant, show Windows 8 faster in most games, not the other way around.

Something else to note, the test results were published a day after the commercial release of Windows 8, so drivers and programs have had a better chance to mature on the Windows 8 platform since then.

*most games
I clearly said that there are some games which windows 7 is slightly faster, you can't tell. I've seen the benchmark, and compared
Personally, I prefer windows 8, you can't really really see a big different.

I agree that the differences in gaming either way are hardly noticeable.

My final thought is pretty much the same as yours, go with a 120 SSD or larger. :-)
