I have my doubts about the Power supply I would personally go for a modular design and a quick search revealed this; Cooler Master GX 750 W Power Supply Review | Hardware Secrets Read the conclusions.
The rest seems OK to me, you may eventually benefit from more RAM, but that is no problem as you can always add it later.

i would highly recommend a modular psu, makes for a neater case.

another SSD choice would be the corsair force 3. they are sata3 6gbps, well they can only pull around 4.5gbps but has added headroom.

its funny sata3 is relatively new and its soon to be out dated and the bottle neck for newer drives
