Looks to be a real nice board, which doesn't surprise from ASUS.

You could always live with the provided cooler with the chip and then decide later. Call it phase two and as long as you have a big opening to access the retention plate for swapping then your golden.

SSD:
Samsung Pro or Crucial M4 would be my choices and of course some other notables. If you have tons of games and software and can place the often run games on the SSD then 128 should do fine but if you want all your games and tons of software on the SSD and room to grow them get the 256 but I think you'll find the 128 most capable and affordable.

If Samsung then go pro only.
Newegg.ca - SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Otherwise look for a sale on the Crucial as the pro is kind of hot right now.
