I have bought a Sabertooth X58, i7 950, and will next buy RAM and a 470 GTX (570 doesn't seem worth the extra $100), and a PSU.

Is this a good SSD?

I know that HDDs bottleneck, so to take full advantage of a system's capabilities I figure that I'll put my programs and music on the SSD and everything else on a 1 TB HDD. Also, what are good blu-ray readers (I don't need a BD burner) that utilize SATA?
