Gaming PC Opinions and Assistance

I'm planning on creating a PC for streaming and gaming, such games include but are not limited to Overwatch, League, and Skyrim. I also do some light photo editing in my free time.

An important question (or questions) I have to ask, is an SSD totally necessary? Isn't it's main purpose just to speed up game loading times? Also, is my power supply too much, too little, not good enough? Will my wifi card fit with the graphics card? Will my case be able to hold all of these parts? And finally, are these enough fans? If I'm correct, my motherboard can only support 3 non-cpu fans. I'd really appreciate opinions!

First things, the SSD. It'll speed up your boot times, but it will also stop the long waits when loading in between cells in Skyrim. You will also stop being the person taking 5 minutes to load into League. To me that PSU looks like a quality choice :) You might want to pick some quieter fans, may I suggest be quiet! or Noctua as companies who make good fans. Nice GPU, will run mentioned games easily. Last but not least, I have absolutely no clue about the wifi card deal.

Hope this helps!
