A 120GB SSD from Samsung will run you about $80 and will greatly improve the BOOT times only on games and your OS that you put on there.

A 120gb SSD is good if you plan on using it for your OS, a few games, and a few applications. If you plan on having lots of games on your PC, I would go for a 256gb SSD, just to be safe.

SSDs will improve boot times of your OS, and loading times in games, NOT fps.

An SSD will shorten load times, but won't do anything else for games.

Other than that it's mostly to help the OS run quicker and boot faster - it will not boost game fps.
