Can you stretch your budget a little bit?

If you get the MSI GTX 770 with a 256GB SSD for the operating and some programs. Then use a 1TB WD hard drive for your documents and other media the system will be a lot faster.

If you are just having the one drive then I would buy the 1TB HDD and the GTX 770. Also I wouldn't buy the Black Series because the Blue Series is almost just as good. The difference is not really noticeable. However if you really want an SSD then get the 120GB version of the SSD and then see how much money you save and maybe put that towards a 1TB HDD or a better graphics card.

That's fine, but I would upgrade to a SSD in the future for the OS. I only have a 60GB SSD just for my OS then a 1TB for files and programs. I wish I spent more money and got a 120 or 250 just to put some programs on it. But the difference between SSD and mechanical is quite a lot. The GTX 770 is a decent GPU, and the 780 is a lot more money
