Have just bought a s/hand Mac Pro whch I would like to speed up a little.   I have 8Gb RAM installed and can go to 16Gb, and could possibly replace my boot drive with SSd. 


Can anyone tell me which is the better speed investment for using programmes like iMovie and PhotoShop? (not intensively, but regularly).


I have read in a couple of places that SSd's favour 'read' over 'write' so wondered whether heavy writing programmes like PhotoShop would not fare well on such a drive?



Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
