I am going to be spending about 300 dollars on upgrades here in the next month. I have decided that It is probably best for me to spend it between a SSD and new GPU. Here is my current rig.

MB: MSI 990XA-GD55
CPU: AMD FX 4100 (OC to 4.8GHZ)
Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ EVO
RAM: 2X4GB GSkill (OC to 1866)
GPU: BFG GTX 285 1GB
PSU: 650w
Case: Antec 900
HDD: WD6400AAKS 640GB

I mostly game but also do some work from my pc which would benefit from the speed of the SSD. I do not store a lot of data and also have an old WD 1TB external for additional storage. Here is what I was thinking:

Crucial 128GB SSD $119.99
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

EVGA 560Ti 1GB $199.99
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

What do you think? What would you do? I do usually prefer newegg.com but tiger seems to have the better prices on the GPU's right now.

Those would be good upgrades, the 560Ti not that big though but acceptable http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt...

I would really like to get the 670 or wait for the 660ti but the 670 is over $400 and the 660ti wont be out for a while from what I've read so not really sure what to do? What would you do?
