You'd might want to up the PSU a bit, 550W might be pushing it

Thank you for your reply. Do you think, it is ok otherwise? I was not planning to OC the system.

It looks good, but I'd be careful with that SSD. Windows alone takes around 20GB, so that would leave you with only 30GB or so for your applications/games.

An good alternative would be a Samsung F3 1TB. It is among the fastest hard drives and pretty reliable.

I'd plump for a 1GB version of the GTX 460, as I hear that's actually a slightly more powerful card, rather than simply having more VRAM
