Planning to build my very first gaming pc, would like some opinions on it, and how it performs, not really sure if should get an ssd though, read some places where it's not really needed, or that it's important.

Well an SSD is alot faster than a Hard Drive people reccomend a SSD to either put your operating system on or you can save all your games on it. I personally don't think its worth the 90 bucks but others will say it is.

You don't NEED a SSD, if you are a speed demon you might want one. If possible, save a bit more for the GPU.

Yeah, I read about putting the OS on the ssd, but maybe in the future, yeah, I'm also thinking of bumbing up the gpu to a r9 series card, though, I'll need to see if everything will work together first, especially with the case
