SSD drives do not affect gaming. At best they reduce load times, so the game will launch faster, and you will load and precache map data much faster (so less waiting).
For everything else, your CPU and graphics card is what does most of the work.
That system is pretty good, RAM is probably a bit overkill since you don't really need more than 4 GB of RAM for games. Just spend the extra money on an SSD instead.
