Still fairly new to building my own computer as this will be my second build. I have purchased/already had some of the components and will be purchasing everything else within the next two weeks. I'm looking for suggestions or comments such as changes that have little effect on cost but would create an improvement.

Case: Cooler Master HAF932 Full Tower (already have)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 (3.2 GHz)
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (4 x 2) 1600
Graphics: EVGA GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB
PSU: Forget the exact PSU but will be re-using one I have (650W)
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
SSD: Haven't decided if I want an SSD for the OS yet as I'm not fully aware of how big of a difference it makes so I'm open to suggestions

Thanks in advance for any replies

gtx560ti 1gb or 2gb if you want, get the amd phenom II x4 960T true quad, almost the same with your x6 just that if your gaming which i believe you will based on your title you dont need 6core
