If your happy and dont want to go sli in the future i dont see any problem with that proposed rig mate , the 460 will be a hell of a boost over the other card

however if you wanted in the future to possible buy another 460 to go sli i would say this is a solid board Gigabyte GA-H55-UD3H Intel H55 (Socket 1156) DDR3 Motherboard [GA-H55-UD3H] with two full speed pcie slots

obviously if your not an avid overclocker and not bothered about sli in the future then your choices are sound

from a purely gaming standpoint an ssd isnt really that much of a boost (apart from map load times they will fly!), games that use streaming textures can see a nice improvement but ive not seen any benchmarks that would convince me to shell out the extra cash

How about this... Newegg.com - OCZ Onyx Series OCZSSD2-1ONX64G 2.5" 64GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
64 Gig.... big enough for windows 7 and a few key programs.....a SSD is well worth the money.....

They sound great mate.

Corsair is top notch when it comes to PSU's (well, they're top notch when It comes to pretty much anything lol).

I had a GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 460 1GB OC'ed not that while ago and, I gotta say, you'll love that card, keeps that GF104 chip cool while making zero noise. Drivers are a little raw at the moment, but NVIDIA is working hard at it (262.99 should bring some much needed optimizations for GTX 400 series cards).

Motherboard looks great as well, can't go wrong with ASUS, although If you really want to save a couple of bucks here, then I'd recommend going with this board right here:

Newegg.com - ASUS P7H55-M PRO LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Although, bare in mind, It's a mATX board, so you'll be severely limited expansion wise.

Either way, build is looking great .
