If your motherboard is old enough, you might be faced with the old 3 GB/sec SATA hard drive interface speed (the new one is 6 GB/sec.) It'd be a shame to sink $$ into an SSD that is throttled by your motherboard HD transfer rate.

That said, I'm in the same boat. My system is from 2010, has the 3TB rate, and I added an SSD for drive C: several months ago. It does boot up faster. I can't say it helped too much with audio apps, but that might be bottlenecked elsewhere. It's fast enough to to 40-50 track audio projects easily. Kinda chokes on video though.
