I would personally just get one 250gb SSD, that should be plenty big, and just get a storage mechanical hard drive for your documents, music etc. Other than that, your build is dead on. The case is quite big for a single GPU set up - maybe take a look at the Phantom 410 instead? Awesome build, otherwise. :)

We dont have the 840 evo series yet in australia, plus its alot more costly in australia than in us

i went with the 630 cause later next year im going sli, and my friend has one with the 4770k with ssd behind the mobo tray, and his 4770k stays warm (not as hot as usual)

also picked 2 ssd to take advantage of having 120gb os drive/ more os programs space, 250gb as games ssd

If you're SLIing your card in the future you'll need at least a 750w PSU to do so.
