The Asus video card you selected requires a 500w psu minimum. You selected a case that comes with a 450w psu ?

There are two versions of the Crucial M4 128gb SSD , one has a read/write of 500/175 and the other has a read/write of 415/175.
The Corsair 120gb SSD has a read/write of 555/515. I usually go with Corsair because of that and it's just as reliable.
