Interesting, thanks for the feedback fellas. I guess thinking back there were only a handful of games that really needed a quad core to run well. I think I saw the biggest generational upgrade out of an SSD more than anything else but that doesn't really apply to most games.
Yeah, switching to an SSD might net you general usage performance, especially if you do a lot of office work on your machine. My desktop is purely for gaming, I have a laptop for general use/office work, so I didn't see much of a gain going with an SSD, except in games with a lot of loading (FO3/NV, Skyrim, etc.). I did stick an SSD in my 3 year old Dell Studio and the difference was phenomenal.
