Is the SSD worth it? Does it really increase loading performance that much?

Should this be able to play latest games maxed? Will it last for the next few years?

Any changes?

Thanks everyone.

Well yes the ssd is well worth the money.
But I would suggest you to please change the cpu. Although the new piledriver cpus are much better than their bulldozer counterparts, they are nothing close to ivybridge or even sandybridge. The Fx 6300 might bottleneck your gpu in some cpu intensive games like skyrim. You can add a few bucks and get an i5 instead. Trust me you'll never regret it.
