What Kinda Bike Is That?

I would do both. If you purchase a Superbrace, it will probably cost you around $150. If you do the springs, (I like the Sonics), that will cost you about $100. Together, you will spend less then $300 on what I consider a major performance upgrade to your bike. This performance enhancement translate to increased safety and confidence in handling the bike.
The installation of the Superbrace will take you about 15 to 20 mins. The springs will take you a little longer. There are several threads here that explain how to do complete the latter task. I wrote one with included pictures when I replaced my springs in late Winter.
It's your birthday, go for both!
