That's a 'good' deal for what you're paying for in this setup. These days $900+ can go quite a long way, but, you at least paid less than $1 per GB on that solid state drive which is a true bargain. I am not truly aware of the brands to look for in SSDs, but the price is great. Keep in mind that 120GB is going to be mostly OS & Updates.
1TB of HDD space can be enough or a paltry amount depending on your personal tastes. I have a single 1TB external drive and 1TB drive in my system with 2 250GB drives in raid 0. Most of my space goes to steam, high definition video and music.
invest in a external drive and you'll be fine.
