    I would go for a 120GB ssd at least. Mine filled right up with three games and a few apps! The video card is what you need to spend the most on. You can get a good balanced system for a thousand bucks. I recommend ASRock, Corsair, Seasonic and Crucial as good brands to start with. Good luck and have fun building your first system.


    Not on this kind of a budget. You don't want to trade speed for space, 120GB won't get you very far these days.

    That's not really a downgrade at all - that all works and looks like it will be a good system.

    The 3450 can't be overclocked as it doesn't have an unlocked multiplier and forcing it will void your warranty.

    No - after formatting and Windows install on a 60GB SSD you're left with about 20GB free and that won't get you very far these days. Get the mechanical HD now, add an SSD later on.
