After careful consideration, I think that I am going to go with a new MB/Processor. I forgot to mention my current MB (Asus P6T) which Sata support is 3gb/s. SSD drives that I am looking at are 6gb/s. I do not think that it would be optimal to upgrade to an SSD before having a board that can utilize it 100%. You guys did make me think about getting an SSD, and will be coming in the near future. For now I shall wait till April's Ivy Bridge release and get me a nice I7-3770k. Thanks for the replys.
