    Red face I really need help.

    I need to upgrade my rig but I'm not sure where to start. I'll post my specs. If someone can suggest which piece to upgrade first that will give me the biggest performance increase I would be truly grateful.

    3.60 gigahertz Intel Core i7 920 (4 cores)
    G.SKILL PI Series 6GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
    ATI Radeon HD5870 1GB Ram X 2 in SLI
    1TB Hard Drive

    I use my PC mainly for gaming. I am sort of undecided whether a new video card, more memory, or an SSD would give me a greater boost. Please if anyone can help that would be great.
