the rest of the build is excellent. Im sure youll be pleased with your purchase (i love the performance i get from mine, and its pretty much the same specs) No money is going to waste, and all of the prices are very good.

IS putting games on an SSD worth it really? I could get a smaller SSD as I might just want to put the OS on it if it doesnt matter as much for games. I dont think that having the games load up faster is needed. Opinion please :)

i dont know too much about ssd's but if you get one, id get a 128 gig and just install os for super fast loading times/boot. sure games can benefit but it would be really unnoticeable. if you want to save money you can get something like this

Im going to be getting one and installing os on it. Its super fast (made for servers) however it is overkill for a desktop lol but its cheap and name brand

That drive you listed is a SAS. Does your MB have a SAS connector? Most consumer boards don't.
