I am looking for to build a pc for mid to high end gaming. After I build this, I won't get a new pc for 3~4 years. My budget is 1500ish USD. Here is the part list http://pcpartpicker.com/list/f3ZCwV

You definitely want an SSD, it will make overall system usage much snappier. You could get an M.2 drive.

But do I really need a SSD? My computer right now is just running on a HD and it's running ok

While the SSD won't affect gaming performance at all, it will definitely make overall system usage way faster (faster boot times, application launches, ect), and will make everything feel more fast. While having an SSD isn't necessary, it is strongly recommended. Most SSD's aren't very expensive. Just get a cheap 100-256 GB SSD ($50-80), and put the OS and all of your commonly used programs (web browser, ect) on there, and then place all of your large programs and files (games, ect) on a 2nd mass storage drive.
