I appreciate the input guys.
Not gonna' lie, I've been rocking this mobo and CPU since '09 and just really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really
) want to upgrade. Problem is I have no need to upgrade my CPU or my mobo.
Unless somebody brings up a really convince argument otherwise thinking I'll just grab that SSD to replace my boot drive. I've been wanting to upgrade my storage, most these drives are old and a bit slower compared to their modern cousins. 180GB should be very comfortable as an OS drive and a handful of programs (mostly Office, Norton360, etc).
Twice a year I can get killer discounts on Intel products. Maybe this winter if I can grab the processor with a mobo for super cheap.
