$175 to spend, want best bang for buck!!
currently running intel i7 920 Hyper212 plus cooler, 6GB DDR3, boot drive is 60 GB OCZ SSD SATA2, second drive 500 GB WD.... GTX260 Super overclocked 896 MB video card, don't have much room on the SSD to install many it worth upgrading the boot drive to a 120GB SATA3, so i can install my apps there? would i notice a decent increase in speed in running my apps on the SATA3 drive vs. running them on the secondary drive?
got $175.00 to spend on an upgrade...what do you guys suggest?

You'd probably feel a slight increase in performance by going with a larger SATA III SSD vs your current 60GB OCZ SATA II SSD.

I'd recommend the Mushkin Enhanced Chronos, which offers both performance and reliability at a great price:
Laptop: MSI GS30 Shadow-045 Dimensions: 12.6" x 8.9" x 0.8" 2.65lbs CPU: Intel Core i7-4870HQ Quad-Core + Hyper-Threading OC 2.5-3.9GHz RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Video Card: Intel Iris Pro 5200 Storage: 2x128GB SDD RAID0 Audio: ASUS Xonar U3 USB Sound Card + Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones Screen: 13.3" - 1920 x 1080 IPS + 27" Dell P2715Q IPS 3840 x 2160 Keyboard: Filco Majestouch MX Cherry Blue Mouse: Logitech MX518
