SSD or faster CPU and more RAM?


I use following config:
CPU: Celeron 420 (one-core, 1.6 GHz, LGA775)
Mobo: Gigabyte 945GZM-S2 with integrated Intel graphics
RAM: 1,5 GB DDR2
Storage: HDD SATA 500GB + HDD 160 GB

I use this mostly for Internet browsing and some office work.

It has been OK for last few years, but now feel little bit sluggish. Starting Firefox or OpenOffice takes too much time. There is problem with handling 1080p video and so on. I do not play at all.

Should I go for putting SSD drive or rather change motherboard and CPU and RAM for sth cheap based on LGA1155?

I cannot spare money for both.

Any advice will be helpful!
