GA H61M HD2
640GB SATA 3GB/s HDD
NVIDIA GT 610 (Not looking at a GPU upgrade ATM)
350W Sea Sonic PSU
A 128GB SSD and i3-3220 are both around the same price. Which would be the better upgrade? It's a home/office/light gaming rig. The SSD would be bottlenecked by SATA 3GB/s, which would certainly be a factor. Feel free to suggest other options, but I don't want to have to upgrade PSU. Thanks
Don't think the cpu would be a limit with what you use the computer.t;s not like you'll notice much difference in speed. A ssd even with the limits of sata2 connection will speed up the computer especially booting up. Less speed on everyday tasks. If this is what you're looking for get a ssd. A ssd can ago be used in another computer less so with the cpu. If not save the money.
