Why i5 4670k and not i5 4690k also that ssd is rather small for the cost can't you get a bigger one for slightly more? It does seem odd though that you spend more on cpu than gpu

do i need more gbs for my ssd if im just going to run my OS on it?? this is my first build so i am not too sure what is best for me. also i didnt wanna spend too much on my gpu considering the price jump from gtx700 to 900. what vid card would u recommend in the 150-250 range?

no you don't need more gb for your ssd but its a lot to pay for something that size where you can fit only the os and 1 game prehaps 2 triple a games.
