Should I can my SSD and invest in something else?

I'm a bit OCD when it comes to a few things and keeping my computer looking tidy and nice is one of them. I haven't built my PC yet but I was wondering wether I should get rid of my SSD and invest in a Modular PSU and a better Mobo and buy my SSD later.

Thanks in advance and here is my build as it currently stands:
i5 3570K
Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO
ASROCK Z77 Pro3
8GB KIT 1600 Kingston Hyper-X
1TB Westen Digital Blue
Radeon HD 7870 Saphire O/C
Thermaltake Litepower 500W
Samsung SATA DVD Optical Drive

(This will be my first build BTW)

  1. get this ram. kingston ram is bad for intel rigs

    get this power supply. yours is junk
    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=59615&vpn=P1550SXXB9&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1257

    id personally try to get a SSD in any build above 900. but then it has to be that you have a good case, decent motherboard and decent overall specs to consider one

    this ssd will do it

    Thankyou for your suggestions but I have put some effort into having the inside of my build blue and black so that RAM wouldn't do it. Also I wasn't settled on that PSU yet and I though if I got rid of the SSD I could get this http://pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=15349 which many people have suggested and would go nice with my build. Also I'm not ure to take you seriously judging by your name :P
  3. At that price range i would get a hx650w from corsair. Its modular, 80+ gold, & since its so efficient the fan doesn't kick in until 30% usage.

    Thanks for the reply but still no-one has answered my question. Should I can the SSD and upgrade my PSU?

    Your PSU does need an upgrade for sure. But an ssd is also very important. I suggest adding another $100 on your budget and get the PSU TheBigTroll suggested. If you really don't have another $100 then go without an SSD if you wish, but my build would seem incomplete without my SSD.

    And my favorite ssd that I use is http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/part/intel-internal-hard-drive-ssdsc2cw120a310 only $109

    Thankyou for your reply. I am probably not going to be building this for a while so by then the proces of SSD will probably have gone down and I can also by SSD later right?
