250GB SSD, max. if you want general storage for your files and less used applications, get an HDD. financially makes more sense than a 1TB SSD.

check pcpartpicker for a deal on RAM, which changes daily. you may find a ddr3-1866 for sale.

Personally, I wouldn't build a PC with only one drive anymore. 1 drive for OS and applications, other drive(s) for backups and other stuff.
Nor one without an SSD.

Depends on your use.

you were planning to get a $500+ SSD. i'm sure you can spend on a 250GB 840 EVO & a 1TB HDD for far less than $400.
