Can't buy from Amazon or Newegg unfortunately. I'm in Australia.
Also, I was thinking that I could spend more since I got the graphics card free so I went for 27 inch instead of 24 monitor. (buying from pccasegear which is in aus)

Also, why should I use an ssd?

They're quiet, no moving parts, and windows boots up in about 15 seconds from a cold start. I'll never go back to a regular drive; I don't need the space. Use a small capacity ssd for a boot device and downloading large files. 60 gb is enough.
