I think you are way off in several areas.
1) Psu. The Rosewill psu is not the 1000w psu you think it is. If you look, you will see that it has a maximum of 52a on the 12v rails; the most important spec for a psu.
At the same price, compare it to the XFX 750w unit:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Not only is it silver certified, but it has 62a capability on the 12v rails.
It is also very highly reviewed.
2) The motherboard is way overpriced unless you are looking at quad graphics cards which is insane.
3) In time, 6gb sata will be useful, and that will be for some expensive SSD's. A conventional hard drive can transfer from it's buffer at sata speeds, but most of the data will come from the spinning platter at a fraction of the capacity of sata. Do not pin any high hopes for performance on that.
4) 32gb is just about the minimum for a os SSD. A concept which I approve of. It makes your system feel much more responsive. I would look for something like 64gb or more. SSD's will get faster and cheaper by fall, so be prepared for buyer's remorse.
5) For such a nice system, why go cheap on the mouse? Look at the Logitech G500 or MX-518

Hmm, I want the motherboard for overclocking and I see myself doing quad graphics in the future. The ssd will be upgraded. The psu will be upped. The ssd will be upped. Any other tips?

For whatever reason, your link (and mine) do not work.
I was referencing the XFX 750w unit.

Every ASUS X58 motherboard can overclock well. You are paying a bunch for the last 2% that record seeking LN cooling overclockers are looking for.
Quad GTX480 might make sense if you ar folding@home. Or, possibly triple 2560 x 1600 monitors. Otherwise, it is pure extravagance for gaming. Those who know will know.
