SSHD vs HDD vs SSD

I am building a budget gaming computer and am still deciding on storage. I have heard that SSHDs are a perfect balance between SSDs and HDDs, but I suspect there is a catch of some sort. I know that HDDs are king in terms of storage size and I could just buy one of those and get an additional SSD later. What should I do?

The only Hybrid SSHD worth anything is the new WD Black which is horribly priced. The problem with SSHD is it gives you the worst of both worlds. You get a 5400 rpm hhd and a slow ssd (normally with very small capacity and only used to cache). You' be far and I mean far better off with a Samsung 840 (pro-top speed/evo good speed but cheaper), and a normal/typical 1tb 7200 rpm mechanical.
