Do SSD use a different controller than the standard IDE or SATA ports I have?
No, SSDs are SATA
Are the SATA standards backwards compatible also?


Anyway.
Shopping list:
1 SSD ~ 128GB. Avoid OCZ, get Intel if in budget.
1 new video card (might do a 660 or 7850 for budget purposes vs the 660Ti and 7950).
Possibly more RAM (6GB is nice, 16GB would be nicer :):))
Need to verify which slots I still have open to see if maybe I can grab a XONAR sound card as well as currently using onboard, or I see that there are SATA3 PCIe controllers if I wanted to get SATA3.

Sound about right?
