The gpu is the most important component for gaming, the ssd is expendable.
At that budget go for a 7770 amd ghz edition.

Sapphire Radeon HD7770 £88.00
the SSD can wait until you get a much better gpu. a 7770 will be a phenomenal upgrade from that fine 9600gt.
Very low write speeds from Crucial SSD
Upgrate my 9600gt
