I see, so you will just dedicate that single SSD to Steam? Will that be enough? Some games are huge, GTA is about 50gb I think, not sure what you will play.

4.5k budget you've got plenty to upsize the SSDs. 1tb at least. Still leaves room for the GPU and a decent mobo and CPU. 16gb DDR4, AIO, Upgrade to a 980 Ti Classy. Fractal Define S case and still have money left.

I just did a quick wishlist and was around 4k. (Unless you want a good monitor in the price?)
Anyways just a quick list nothing checked for ultra features or compatibility. Gives you an idea tho and if half your stuff is from your last build you'll have plenty of money left.

If the link doesn't work go to pccg and search wishlists for Bones Skylake Build

Corsair Graphite 780T Black Full Tower Case or

Well that saves you $1100 so a good start. I like the Air 540 personally although the 780T looks nice as well. Get whichever you like the look of best.
Both those motherboards are awesome so aesthetics will probably be your focus if your case has a nice window. Can't go wrong with either of them.

Jimma47 is right, a single big SSD would be a better choice then two smaller ones. You could always partition it in half when you set everything up and that way you have one partition for games and the other for your OS.
