That stuff is compatible, but what do you want to do with your machine? If you want to game, drop the SSD and HDD. Get a 1TB WD Caviar Blue drive and put the money you save into a better GPU.

Also, no matter what you do, get rid of that power supply. Only buy from Antec, Corsair, SeaSonic, or XFX for power supplies.
