    I can get ddr2 ram for pretty cheap so I probably will go both 2.5 ssd and more ram. what software do you recommend to clone the os for a bootable drive these days?

    Your drive may come with cloning software?

    Standard recommendation is Macrium, although I think Aomei, Paragon, and others can do it. Acronis has a lot of complaints.

    Plenty of choices, aomei backupper is pretty simple to use - they do a free ( standard ) version.

    Probably quite a lot you could do with that machine.

    I bought it as a refurb PC and it came the intel core 2 quad q9550 so I think that is the highest I can go with the 235w PSU that came in the SFF PC's. But she's been a good pc so I think a little love is needed with and upgraded SSD and a bit more ram.

    The SSDs I've purchased over the past few years either came with drive cloning software or had free software available for download.

    The nice thing about such software is that it's intended for that single purpose, so it's simple to use.

    Just noticed the free version of aomei doesn't do system clone ( it does partition/disk clone).

    Yes, ssd usually come with, or have a link to, some cloning software. often an oem version of acronis. Might as well use that.
