I also will be getting an ssd and i have a HDD.

this is really at the edge of my budget its right around $550 i cant go much over that but if you see anything that is going to be a problem let me know.

I will mostly be using for Gaming, Skyrim, Diablo 3, and ElderScrolls online when that comes out
Thanks
