^good quality. meaning VelociRaptor? or WD Black?
If that's what the guy has budgeted and is willing to spend his money on, but I'm running Seagate 500G SATA IIs with 4G of system memory and have no problems playing any games I have.
What makes you think VelociRaptor or SSD's are necessary for playing games?
It may load the game into memory faster, but once the game is loaded into memory, its impact is really minute.
Now the OP did ask for advice on excellent storage options, but he also claims to be a newb to computer building, maybe he doesn't realize an SSD or VelociRaptor is not necessary for a great gaming machine, if he invests on a sufficient amount of system memory.
