What PSU? I'd suggest a second 7970 if it's a decent one.
i think the second gpu would bottleneck your cpu... best course is to get a nice ssd for it.
Should the SSD be the storage drive or the boot drive. I currently have 496 GB used.... It'll be hard to find a SSD that big for a good price.
ssd s make most sense as system drives. they are fast and small compared to hdd's. you would normally move movies, music and such to the hdd and use the ssd for the operating system and files you use most / need in the blink of an eye.
