If I were you, I'd get the 3770k bro as long as it's not abused (I'm assuming it's been used). Also the 3770k will kill the 8350 with all honesty, even though it's not the newest in the market. You can always add the ssd after a while.

Yep a good SSD will make a bigger impact than going from a 8350 to a 3770k

or..... get the 3770k and sell it for small profit! Then get the 8350 + ssd or i5 + ssd.

I have to agree, the SSD will make a bigger difference because the mechanical hard drive is the major bottleneck here.

Get the Xeon E3 1230 V2 and get a 64GB SSD.

A 64 GB SSD won't even hold much more than windows...what benefit would that be? The point of getting the SSD is faster load times in the OS and games. With Windows itself being 24 GB and games like CoD Ghosts Taking 55 GB of HDD space, you can't even put a single next gen game on the SSD.

Wow, I never knew that games would take up that much space. I never downloaded anything larger than 10GB, so...

Games aren't getting nearly as bloated as Windows though...My entire Ubuntu install with all my packages is 8 GB and fits on a thumb drive.

64GB is the minimum size for windows ONLY. You want to add programs and a few games too, get 120-128GB. You want a "gaming" ssd, you need 240-256GB at least.

Remember, you don't want to ever keep your ssd at over 80% full. Performance and longevity will suffer.
