SSD: Only worth it if you got money to burn.
I'm guessing you don't have one then Croga. Find me someone who has an SSD that doesn't think they were worth the investment. WoW definitely benefits from an SSD on things like a UI reload, entering a new zone, flying into a populated area.
also: realise that you can set up a proper game system for about 2/3rds of that money at the moment..... A decent i5 processor and HD5830 will get you pretty much similar performance for a couple hundred euro less.
TBH you can pick any amount over €500 and build a "game system". It just depends on what settings in games you're willing to define as acceptable. For me that's running in 1920x1200 at high settings. Plenty of companies making lots of money selling gaming systems for well into the thousands, because they just play games better. You just pick a budget and aim at it.
