Built a gaming pc solemnly to play guild wars 2. but i might wanna play more games later. not sure if my pc can handle it though

I need help choosing Memory and Hardrive. also should i get SSDs? I SKIMPED THIS IN MY BUILD, my price range for hard drive is $50-100 but for SDD $100-200


also i saw what SSD are...a bit faster in doing stuff...but its not alot of memory and more expensive..i could be wrong on this though.

It would help if you stated which country you're from and which websites/stores you intend to buy from. Do you live close to a Microcenter?

Please state the prices of each component you listed for reference.

Your memory is fine.

Don't get the Blue get as WD Black 1TB or a Samsung F3 1TB.

Get an SSD. Lots of people like the Crucial M4, Samsung 830, and any Intel Drive.

the intel 128g 330 that just came out is not a bad ssd..it not the fastest out there but intel and samsung ssd have the best firmware out there that keeps the drive running. for the memory you have to look on the mb vendor web page they have a list of tested ram. also check crusial web page they have a memory advisor. a better case is the new r300. that on toms hardware web page of new gaming cases. the antec case (i have the same one) the longest card is 10 inches on the antec case. on the r300 it 17 inches.
