I don't know a lot about video bottlenecks, but just to chip in that the new 1Tb HDD will have faster read/write speeds than the old 160 especially if he springs for the recently available 7200rpm versions.

I just ordered the Hitachi 1Tb, 7200RPM, 32MB cache.  I am also upgrading from 5Gb to 8Gb.  After I see what performance boosts this change brings (from the 160gb, 5400rpm), I may then still go for the SSD.
