Upgrading RAM by 2GB in a 32-bit OS will do nothing for him, as will an SSD if the OP is running anything other than Windows 7 - unless he were to get a non-TRIM supporting drive. And seeing that it is a budget conscience question an SSD would not be a recommendation to suggest for an upgrade.

EDIT: to answer the OP's question, I would not get anything higher than an nVidia's 560Ti, for his build. A 660 is not worth the investment, unless you are building a brand spanking new "budget" rig. A 660Ti is a very good card, but getting one for that machine is a waste of money...my 2 cents.
