r9 290
Msi z97 g45 gaming
Corsair vengence 8gb
2tb hardrive

Great build, the only thing I would change is the cx 750w power supply because it uses Chinese Capacitors.

Looks good to me :) 
Just to be sure, what exact SSD are you going to get?

If you are getting an SSD I recommend Samsung's 840 Evo, it is a great well rounded SSD

a i5 4690k make sure you have a good cooler like hyper 212 or h 80i. also the r9 290 will kill any game except for crysis 3 at 4k but even then can handle itself
