Mac Pro 5,1 (mid 2010) - SSD Upgrade?

Mac Pro - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Like the title says, I have a mid-2010 MacPro 5,1. I recently added more ram (now at 52) and replaced all the hard drives a little over a year ago. It's a great machine, but I do feel like maybe there's a little room for speed improvement.

I'm a professional photographer and mostly use photoshop. Occasionally iMovie and Audacity for customer testimonials. I sometimes use photoshop for making vine-type Instagram promos.

I was wondering how many people have done the SSD upgrade to the boot drive -- and did you notice a big improvement in performance? I was looking at the kits from OWC and am considering it, but I don't want to spend the money if it's only going to be a nominal difference.

Thoughts?

Thanks!
