Default I need help deciding on a budget storage upgrade.

Ok I have noticed that i am being limited by my Seagate 1.5TB 7200RPM SATA II cause i am unable to record @ 60fps @ 1080p,i think is is because i am getting under 100MB/s read/write speeds lol,so i am going to get an upgrade.(but i don't keeping my old drive if i can) but i just want to be able to record and the video playback smoothly

My sister was owes me $100 and i am willing to spend $50 on top of that, i have been looking newegg.com,and i have picked out 2 diff options.

These 2 things together:
Corsair Force Series GT CSSD-F60GBGT-BK 2.5" 60GB SATA III
Newegg.com - Corsair Force Series GT CSSD-F60GBGT-BK 2.5" 60GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
SilverStone HDDBOOST HDD Accessory
Newegg.com - SilverStone HDDBOOST HDD Accessory

Or just get one of these:
HITACHI Deskstar 5K3000 HDS5C3020ALA632 (0F12117) 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s
Newegg.com - HITACHI Deskstar 5K3000 HDS5C3020ALA632 (0F12117) 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

If you don't think should get either,let me know what i should get, or do,but keep in mind i have tried reinstalling my OS,and many other things so i don't think i can just fix it.

Now i have already tried asking this on a fourm i am on a lot,and got trolled,and another guy said something that made no sense to me, he said that "The HDDboost will only make it slower in most of the cases, waste of money, don't buy it."

So what should i do?
