Great build, an SSD would improve your user experience. The r9 380 will last you a bit longer as it is a good amount better than a GTX 960, and is a 4GB model. Over the past few months it has seemed that it's performance is only getting better with DirectX 12, Asynchronous Compute Support, Vulcan, Driver Updates, and other features. An 850 Evo is a bit high priced as of current, as Samsung inserted their 750 series SSDs under the 850 series to give a price boost. If you want a more affordable SSD with comparable performance, I would recommend checking out the PSY CS1311. PNY used to make poorly made SSDs, but after their restructuring of production, they are putting high quality controllers in their SSDs, which come with a 3 year warranty for most consumer grade ones (CS1311 included). Even though they exist, in the summer I would expect prices for all hardware to fall (as consumers have the most liquid money during the summer statistically).

Thanks man really appreciate the feedback! I'll probably get the 850 evo in the coming weeks. I was just eager to build already and thought it could wait a few weeks no longer then a month tho :D

It's no worry. A hard drive for now is definitely a choice that has no problem (as it is the bare essential, but an SSD is not), but just be careful that when you want to clone your HDD to SSD, that you will have enough space on your SSD to do so. Samsung only has higher prices because they have marginally better performance, as well as 3D NAND instead of the standard planar memory most SSDs have. I ran into a problem where my HDD had 500GB used and I bought a 250GB SSD, and I had to delete and backup files on other HDDs. Could you maybe stating some of your gaming benchmarks as of current when you have the time and finish up your build? I have looked into r9 380 reviews but most of them are a few months old, and I would like to hear how the performance has evolved over these past few months.

Yeah totally understandable that ssd isn't needed it's more of a nice add on. Sure man will do. I'll let you know. Currently installing my windows so possibly tonight or Tm I'll let you know!

It's not nice to assume or guess as to the means of attaining information for other people. Have you thought to consider the validity of my comment, as well as the correctness of my statement? I can assure you that as an educated consumer in the tech industry since 1999, I have spent much more than 30 minutes in obtaining information that I have deemed to be true and valid.

It was more of a joke than anything. I knew you probably knew what you were talking about. It was just a lot of information that was really concisely written, so it almost looked like it was copied and pasted :P

Looks great! Have you played any games yet? Have you been happy with the performance? I am considering the same CPU/GPU combo.
