Typical dream machine. I might recommend getting the HDD now and saving the SSD for later, though.

As samurai said, you'd be better off getting the hard drive now, as with gaming, you'll eat up more space than you'd expect in a short amount of time. It's a great build over all and you should be able to max anything out at the moment at 1920*1080.

Enjoy your new pc :)

Nah, definitely start with the SSD. You'll want Windows installed on it, and doing a clean install later and dealing with the old install are more work than they're worth.
If your budget is that tight, get a cheaper SSD and bring yourself closer to that HDD, which you'll want soon, I think: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Oh, and you need a third-party heatsink if you'll be doing any overclocking, which you should definitely do in the future. You won't need higher clock rates right now, but OCing will allow you to skip your next CPU upgrade. The 3000 series runs hot. Go for the $35 Hyper 212 EVO. Leave this for after the HDD, whenever you feel like you've got the money to spare.

Absolutely make sure to set the OS in a SSD. I have a 60GB for Windows 7 64. Otherwise you will have a fast computer, which doesn't actual feel so fast until in game. You need to have the SSD so the computer turns on/off much faster to give you the full feeling of a fast computer, it will be much more fluid and noticeable.
