XPS 8500 Upgrading

I have a XPS 8500 with:

3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-3770 processor (up to 3.90 GHz)
1TB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive 6.0 Gb/s
Radeon HD 7570
Stock 460 Watt PSU

I was going to get a 128GB SSD but I don't know weather to get a OCZ or corsair. After that I as going to upgrade my stock PSU to a GS600 and get a Radeon HD 7950.
I was not sure if everything is compadable with each other. Any information is helpful and thank you in advance.

Get a Kingston HyperX 3k 120gb, I did A LOT of research coming from an old-school RaptorX and this one blows away 99% of the other ssd's in the same price tier. I snagged one for $85 including a $35 rebate and it is absolutely jaw dropping instant fast. Tomshardware ranked it very high on their list for price/performance, best buy for the money IMO.

Great durability, amazing speed, good price, snag it and be impressed.
