Need experience

Alright what would be better keeping an AMD FX-4100 CPU (4x 3.60GHz/4MB L2 Cache) downgrading my HDD to 500Gb and adding an SSD to my build, or upgrading my CPU to a AMD FX-8120 CPU (8x 3.10GHz/8MB L2 Cache) and just keeping my HDD at 1Tb without the SSD?

And are we talking about an existing machine or about a new build?

It's a new build that's going to be used mostly for gaming and web browsing so better performance for both of those activities
