Will a HDD bottleneck me? & SSD performance inhancing?

I'm getting a new PC and I'm not sure whether having a 7200 1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD will bottleneck my system. I will be gaming whilst recording whilst writing the recordings onto the HDD (will be saved onto it). Do I need an SSD?

GPU: Palit GeForce GTX 670 2GB
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k
MoBo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB or WD Black Caviar 1TB?

Do SSD raise the performance if a game is put onto it, so e.g. rendering a game whilst playing? Or only loading SCREENS and the startup of the game? Cheers
