Default Re: $1000 build a little help

What's the purpose of the build?

If it's for gaming, you don't need 16 or 32GB of RAM, and you don't need a 3770k or expensive Z77 board either.

Something like an HX650 or M12 620 Seasonic (X Gold 650 too) is good for up to a GTX 690 or 670 SLI unoverclocked, so no need to go overboard on the PSU either.

As for the SSD, how much space do you want? A 120GB Corsair Neutron GTX is an excellent SSD, as is the Samsung 840pro, and Intel 520.

Edit: Also, since you want to wait for extras later, I suggest just waiting until you can get a 4670k setup because it will ultimately be faster than the 3770k core for core minus HT. Which is useless for gaming (assuming this is for gaming).
