Looks great to me. I'd probably up the capacity of the SSD or just do without though. 60GB IMO is really useless. I use a 150GB VR for my boot drive and its already 75% full with just Win7 Ultimate and all of my programs.

looks good to me.
SSD is a little small (understandable given the price).
You just have to put only your core programs that you use allot on the SSD, and other programs put on a small partition on the HDD. If you have Win7, you can easily move your Library (an all encompassing 'folder' like My Documents) to another hard drive (i have my Library on a server in my house).
