The size of a hard disk does not always to its speed. The rotation speed and the amount of cache are the important factors.

The processor is one of the best for gaming right now.

You might need to look at the games you wish to play. They may or may not need special gpu features.

Ram and more of it and the faster is better rule in my book.

The hard drive is the slowest part, might also look at simple raid with fast data. Dunno if solid state drives are as fast as claimed.

Might look at loading games up on ram disks. That is a way to use ram as hard drive. One of the fastest ways to use data.

this article has created more problems in my mind, it clearly shows the stats that core i7 vs quad core are nearly same at high resolution gaming.

"it clearly shows the stats that core i7 vs quad core are nearly same at high resolution gaming."

That holds true for some games; for others, there is a marked increase in performance with the i7 core.

In the past it's also held true for 9x vs W2K/XP, Intel vs AMD, and ATI vs nVidia. Certain titles seem to prefer certain platforms.
