I would go at least 60GB for your boot drive. And make sure you link your home folder over to the WD.

here is my critique. I am EFFFINGG jealous. Other than that. The SSD looks a little small, but if you configure it correctly and put all of your non OS data on the 500 GB you should be square. Looks great.
