So, having upgraded my computer with an SSD... the logical question became: What next?

Here are my specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition
ASUS M3A79-T DELUXE Motherboard
ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB
120GB Corsair Force Series SSD
1TB Western Digital Black SATA 7200 RPM

I am leaning towards a video card upgrade but I was curious if anyone thought that perhaps a CPU upgrade was needed more?

Hello Nehkara;
Is this for a gaming system? If so more likely a video card would give you the best upgrade performance.

What do you have your CPU overclocked to? Which heat sink are you using? A better heatsink is relatively inexpensive, and it will get you a performance bump.
