In about a month I will have about 900 dollars to spend from working to build my first gaming PC. I only need an OS to be included.(have monitor, etc) My screen res is 1600x900 and I play games like bf3, arma2, css, and far cry. I want to hopefully save as much money as possible and get pretty good performance at high to max on all games with 40+. I am not playing on 1080p and i don't know if it is worth is to get an overclock-able system. Should i save money for an ssd?

Build I had in mind: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CSl2 (OC system)

Build 2: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CSvk (don't know much about sdd's. Are they worth the money?)

Any other build that are worth the money?

Both builds look great. An SSD only helps with load times for games not actual gameplay.

^^ yeah, an SSD is worth it, but not if it is going to take $$ away from your key components (cpu, gpu , psu...)

Programs will open faster. Thats about it. It won't increase the speed of a web browser while browsing or anything like that.

It will max any game at that resolution. You could get a 1080p monitor for like $120. I would say to look in to getting one.
