1) The "problems" are with the motherboards where the SATA ports would deteriorate overtime, but revision B3 fixed that. Such MoBos as the MSI P67A-G43 (B3) has the revision and it's fine. Your MoBo is fine, it has the B3 revision
2) Yes! This combo works
3) -Cheaper RAM:
-Cheaper MoBo:
4) 40GB SSD-
