Windows7 home premium 32-bit

Reads pretty powerful to me. All I'd add is to check that PSU capacity and availability to power the Graphics card (You'll know some have dedicated power lead needs).
As I understand it, those solid-state drives only speed up Booting, so the cost is high if the PC is rarely switched off. Did I read the OS HDD is 240G? Somewhat undersize, IMHO.
Also you said you have several extra drives "available" - worth checking these can be plugged into MBO as I had an issue with AHCI (was it?) where the MBO wouldn't accept extra drives, even though the SATA sockets were there.

Finally, have regard to noise...if you are video-editing the roomneeds to be fairly silent (so you can hear subtle audio-effects).
Even now, I wish I'd gone for a multi-core hyperthreading processor, for extra speed when rendering..

Good luck.
