I would recommend a little better RAM, like G. SKILL RIPJAW Cas7 DDR3 1600. The rest build looks good. If you follow my step-by-step guide in my signature, you should have no issues building your PC. If you have questions, you can always PM me or another of the "vets" in the Homebuilt section and we can help you out.

don't think a blu-ray drive is worth it unless you plan on watching a lot of movies with it and for the secondary drive you should get a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
Caviar Green HDD's are slow

why a WD Green? I would go with Black since it had both bigger cache and fast speed. and i think price is about same or $5 difference? If you know how to put it together than do it yourself. Its not difficult and saves money instead of having company do it.

Primarily I wanted the green to reduce noise levels so along with the SSD I would have a good combination of speed, storage, and silence.

Thanks
