I think you dont need an SSD for gaming.
1TB Black HHD is good enough and you can save money to add a better GPU.
Also Asrock Mobo Extreme 4 is OP!

Well, if you read the whole post I am really having to ONLY stick with parts from BestBuy. I do the need the SSD for video editing and overall fluidity with installing the OS etc. It's just something I want to have. Not really interested in the motherboard you picked. But I really like your choice of GPU for only a little bit more.

Thanks for the advice.
