Why no i5-3570k? Its only $15 more with promotion and you could get around 4.5ghz clock out of it, even if you don't do it now, itll last longer

Ill look into it, but the main thing im cincerned about is that all those parts will work with each other and are the basic things needed for a rig? (I have the monitor, mouse, keyboard, and dvd drive but other than those)

Edit: I just searched up the i5-3570k on newegg and it is like 35 dollars more. I dont know if i will be able to get it with some of the other accesories i need, but definitly something to think about

Any chance to add in a small size SSD as a boot drive?

Yes everything is there, and not bad at all for $700. If you do want some more graphic power though you could always opt for an i3 which still does decent in gaming and get a faster gpu.

Ya but i kinda wanna stick to an i5 because i have an i5 right now and getting an i3 wouldnt be an upfgrade from what i have. My goal is to upgrade all the specs i have right now. (Currently running on a laptop, the gpu is a HUUUUGE upgrade already)

Edit: Oops double post

It's not a must. It will just speed up OS, applications, or games loading time. You can use the SSD as your main drive to store things like your operating system (e.g. you install Windows into this drive), applications (e.g. word processor, spreadsheet, graphics suites, etc), and games.
