    It would be a lot easier to come with constructive criticism if we knew what you were using your Mac Pro for ;)

    How much RAM do you have now? Are you noticing any slow downs? How many page outs? More RAM does not necessarily help if you aren't using it.

    HD is the biggest bottleneck so the SSD should definitely be worth it.

    This. Going up to 8GB was a huge performance improvement when working with video and/or multiple apps open at the same time. Check out macsales dot com they have decent prices on RAM.
