Can you build a PC by just having SSDs and without installing any HDD at all? I know it is going to be more pricey, but is that possible?

Yes, it's perfectly valid to build a system without an HDD's and just SSD's. In a few years time, that may even be the standard system, as HDD's are going away. HDD's may never fully go away, any more than tape drives did, they are still useful for massive archiving jobs. HDD's are evolving towards the way tape drives are too, they are now building more capacious HDD's which are not very good at random access, but very good at serial access tasks. I expect that once 1 TB SSD's are available for less than $100, then that'll be the end for HDD's.

You shouldn't be building a PC if you have to ask this

Yes of course an SSD is a hard drive but it uses electronic chips instead of a platter look on eBay there is a 500 gig Toshiba SSD right now for only $60 that's no more expensive than a regular hard drive. It doesn't make any difference what size the hard drive is as long as it's SATA you can still plug it in to your desktop even if it's a laptop sized hard drive it's still going to be way faster than a large platter hard drive
