Can my PC be a new console beater ( was previously Tweak my PC)

Few months back I purchased a PC which had the following spec

Intel Core i5 2500K Processor overclocked to 4.6GHz
Asus P8Z68-V LE Motherboard
4GB PC3-10666 DDR3 Memory
AMD Radeon 6670 1GB Graphics Card
1000GB SATA 7200rpm Hard Disk
24x Sony DVD-RW Drive
500watt Basic EZCool PSU
Onboard High Definition Audio
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM

Its the first new desktop I have had in over 8 years, so technology and what to do with it has slowly passed me by. I used to be very competent with PCs and often built my own but now am back to learning again

As it stands I just have the PC set up as it arrived - I do plan to add an SSD this week (just for the OS) to speed up on booting (this PC seems to take same amount of time to boot as my old one)

However just wandered if anyone has any tips, tricks and tweaks that I should be aware of to get the best out of my machine

In regards to SSD, is my motherboard (Asus P8Z68-V LE) able to handle one, does it have limits as far as they are concerned ?

Also is there anything I should do with regards BIOS settings to get the best out of what I have ?
