All mobos that allow ovc the 2500k have sata III ports (P67 or Z68) but even an old sata II SSD would get a system much snappier than any HDD. HDD will not get any upgrade performance if the port is sata II or sata III, only the SSD would. If I were you I would go with a Sata III SSD, I am thinking Crucial M4 64 GB as the best cheaper option, just add it as boot drive and install the programs on it.
