Do you have a Hard Drive from a past build because a SSD will not supply you with enough space in the future. If you don't you will want to take out the SSD and get a normal HD like this http://pcpartpicker.com/part/western-digital-internal-h...

In the future I might get an additional HD. For now 120gb is more then enough; I only use 89GB of my laptop hd, and I had my laptop for 2+ years. (also on my current laptop hd that 89gb also includes clutter.)

If you're going to be gaming - it would be better to actually go Intel instead of AMD.

I'd suggest something like this:

Oh, and by the way, the ram I listed in the pcpartpicker link is already purchased. On Black Friday I purchase the ram for $30 and some other stuff I sold on ebay.
