eh. not much more to say. them some fine choices. not an SSD aficionado, but i wouldn't be surprised if someone pointed that out. you could go by with a 750W PSU even with 2x670's but unless you're serious about saving up, why not? from here on, it's all about finding the best deal.

EDIT: just noticed. not that i can confirm, but i reckon a high end case like the HAF X would come with it's own 2.5" bracket(s), or at least adjustable HDD brackets. so drop that last one, the SSD bracket, off

Looks fine but your case comes with a mount for an SSD so need for extra bracket.

I would choose another GPU. The standard one with the stock GTX 680 cooler doesn't oc very well since it's not as cooled as some of the other ones with 3rd party coolers (I can barely get mine to 1150mhz core)
