Should I just get the SSD first and HDD later? I hear its way easier to add a HDD than it is to add an SSD. I plan to only play GW2 / World of tanks right now so I can deal with 120gb SSD for a couple of months if I have to. Which ssd would be better OCZ Vertex 4 / Samsung 830 / Crucial M4 or is it buy w/e is cheaper at the time of purchase?

I say wait for a deal. The Samsung 830 was offered for $70 like one or 2 days ago on Newegg, its back @$90 now.

Regarding speeds the Vertex 4 is *slightly* faster than the 830 and the M4 but you won't be able to notice it.

I would buy the Vertex 4 instead and the HDD down the road. I recommend the Vertex 4 because it is the newest drive of the 3, about the same price, it is the fastest and it comes in 128gb vs 120gb which will help ease your capacity concerns. It also has a 5 years warranty.

It doesn't make a difference which order the drives are installed. In most of my systems I run a SSD as the primary and a HDD for storage/backup. I use a WD Velociraptor HDD in my main system as it is very fast HDD but the price per gig is far better than a SSD.
