When you figure in the labor costs of waiting for a process to chug and of changing marginal systems you may even come out ahead in financial terms.
Depends on what you do. A 5960X will be almost twice as fast a 4790K or 6700K for encoding video and rendering, but a tad slower in everything else, unless you seriously like to multitask.
An Intel 750 SSD will boot up and perform menial tasks slower than other PCI-E or M.2 SSDs, but will wipe the floor with them when playing back several streams of 4K video at the same time.
RAM is never an issue until you don't have enough of it, but real-world tests have shown that when running Adobe creative suit applications, having more than 16GB doesn't really improve performance significantly, even with a RAM disk.
