    Well I'm looking for best performance,money not an issue.
    SSD or SSHD?,unless SSHD also requires defragging then i buy SSD.
    I'm a gamer and multi-tasking.

    Even "gamer" is pretty loose description, if you want to play most modern and "heavy" games and to be in clear for next few years, you'll have to do much better than just replacing some of those components.
    Where an SSD is king is: fast system loading, game/program starting, in games, faster level and inter level loading, background work faster (loading and unloading .dll files, temp files and page file work).
    Where's not that good is price per GB. It's best to combine SSD speed with higher capacity HDDs, system and essential programs used all the time on the SSD and data and other programs on HDD. Games you can install on HDD and most will leave some files on your system SSD so it will be fast and not use precious GBs on the SSD.
