no counting a budget price, and for future expansion I would suggest a 256GB or 500gb SSD with a 1TB Black or Blue.

suggestions with low and mid range price. first one is your choice, second and third mine so you can see prices.

Newegg has a Seagate 2TB Hybrid Drive for $99.

A 120GB SSD is sort of a one trick pony and will become outdated very quickly. As you go up in capacity, the price per gb usually goes down. Right now there's a Nand shortage so prices are just a little higher than normal. But I think you'd be fine with a 500gb ssd as the only drive in the pc. I mean a Sandisk 480gb is like $113. 1TB ssd's are still too expensive for me.
