Option 1 + a new ssd = most powerful solution :)

I prefer option one as well, mainly because of the processor. It might have a more powerful graphics card as well?
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Just be aware this gfx card has 256mb of ram... i cant say how it will react with win 7 and modern apps like Live 10 or newer cubase, and you would probably want more system ram for that use as well. Especially if going 64bit.
