An SSD is the best preformance booster (minus video card for gaming) you can get for an older computer. Example my wife's laptop went from in dire need of replacing to good for a few more years with just a SSD replacing the old HD.

Note: You're going to want to have your OS on the SSD. You can still use HD for storage.

Hey I'm getting together parts for a budget pc build and the last part that I need is a evga geforce gtx 1060 3gb gaming graphics card. The problem is it's out of stock everywhere and the only places that have it are pricing way aboce msrp. Anyone here have a website that might have it?

Wait a month...that and don't get the crippled version.  3gb sucks and is not future proof.  Spend a bit more and get the 6gb version.  Not sure why they screwed that up (again) but they did.

GPU prices have jumped because of miners. Tough times.
