7200rpm mech to hybrid = very nice improvement.

Hybrid to SSD will be in the awesome category

I'll be using the hybrid for storage though, too nice a drive to collect dust.

Oh, the 180Gb SSD is large enough to hold my current games too, and I'll swap from Steam folder to hybrid and back as I want to replay something. Looking forward to seeing for myself if there's any increase in gaming performance at all, or not.
Honestly, since getting my SSD, I've noticed very little in-game performance increase, if any at all. It's everything else that is stupid fast.

That said, I still hope to pick up a 512 ~ 600GB SSD later this year as a dedicated steam drive. I can be an impatient man. I want to be in-game the millisecond I click "play" in Steam.
