The 660 is no slouch, and it should hold up very well at 1080p for most games.
Add: After using an ssd for about 2 years, I installed Windows 7 on my old hdd, and it horrendously slow, in every aspect. Going from hdd to ssd is really nice. but I'd say to get a big enough one, 256 or there abouts to be able to put your OS, programs, and even a few games. no sense in getting an ssd and then throwing everything on the hdd, as some have done (i even did before when limited by space
Good to know, I can't believe the price of SSDs have come down so much since the last time I was looking, dreaming of PC gaming lol
