Going from a WD Green to a high end SandForce drive should be a VERY noticeable difference. As in "I need a cup of a coffee and a slice of the time I get back the program will be open...hopefully" to "OMFG my mouse button has barely finished clicking the damn icon and the program is up and running!".

Even if you decide against a SSD....get a fast hdd before you kill that green. They are meant for STORAGE only and their default 8 second headparking coupled with an OS means it will die an early death.
Money isn't an issue at all, definitely gonna run it in AHCI mode otherwise it will get slow.
