Dont buy the ssd use the $80 for a graphics card update. I would personally use an old hdd till hard drive prices came down. 200 dollars is not worth 1tb that could get you a gtx 570 or better. SSD doesn't affect gameplay at all fps wise faster loads screens but to me that not worth $80. The i5 2500k is good thats all i can think of atm.

The hard drive is actually $100. Also I would prefer a SSD since I am just loading the OS on it for faster start ups and if my hard drive crashes I won`t have to reinstall OS.
