It kind of depends. Your GPU is only a generation old, so if you're fine with the performance, then stick with it.

You could upgrade your CPU, but then you'd have to get a new board and maybe new memory as well.

Maybe you should save up, and upgrade your whole rig at once.

Exactly. I think the ssd is the only upgrade that is worth it, imo.

Since you only have a 1600x900, probably no.

Although, you could get a new screen.. :)

or if i can find a hd 7950 for cheap would that be ok

No, unless if the new mobo doesn't support the make and model of RAM that you have.

No, you would be better off if you can get a 7950. Way better off. You will actually notice a ssd upgrade then a processor upgrade.
