I need to upgrade my MBP but i don't know where to start? Im looking for a bigger boost and performance and anything in between. Some of the things i wanna do on my MBP is mostly school related like; Inventor, CAD, edited lite, multisim, etc. I know i need to upgrade my HDD to SDD but how do i go about that? what are my best options? where can i get them? are they compatible with my mac? how do they compete/compare with other SDD's out there?
I' am planning on installing windows 7 on my mac in order to run some if not all this programs this weekend so does anyone know if installing new hardware will effect windows 7 after installation?
Thanks!!

Here is what i have:

I'm running OS X Yosemite 10.10.2
13" mid 2012
Memory 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Intel HD graphics 4000 1024 MB
500GB SATA Disk
SuperDrive
Mac contains 2 memory slots, each of which accepts
a 1600 MHz DDR3 memory module. each slot 2GB

What's a good amount of GB for an SSD?

Really depends on your budget. But I would say nothing less than 256gig…512gig would be better.
