Indeed I share the same lust for a SSD but they are still extremely expensive per GB. Also your AeroCool SilverLightning120mm runs @ 26 dBA would you say it is quiet enough for you to sleep with it on full speed?
If I plug it in directly, I can hear it just barely (because my harddrive is quieter than it so you can hear it.). I have a fan controller on it currently, so I turn it down to silent, and it moves a lot more air than the stock case fan. I would get a fan controller if you wish to, as those give you the option to turn down your fans speed while the computer is idling and downloading stuff at night.
But, as the others say, I would start first with the GPU cooler, as your system will always be as loud as the loudest part.
