Is the RAM the same make/model of that which you already have in the system? If not, I would seek out another of the same kit as which you already have installed.

Everything else looks pretty good, but I'd just be a little hesitant on the inverted case. The 5.25 inch drives are going to stick back further and if you use anything but the top 2 5.25" slots, you might run into issues with the front-to-back spacing between your video card and any 5.25" device. Why have you chosen the "backward" case?

I just have a random 4gb kit in atm, so I'll just change it to a new 8gb kit.
I didn't see that, I think this is the normal version:

Will everything match with my current mobo and cpu? Someone told me some mobo's don't have the right connection for a ssd and i'll need to buy a sata cable :o

When you edited your original post, I think you removed your current mobo and cpu.

As far as hooking an SSD to a motherboard... I haven't seen an 1155 motherboard created that you couldn't hook an SSD to. They use standard SATA ports/cables so you're fine.

Also, it looks like your going with the Silencio case now? That's a decent case, but while being quieter, may not have the same airflow/ventilation of the Bitfenix you were looking at (I do like the normal rather than the inverted Bitfenix). The GTX 570 is going to reach up to the high 80Cs, so consider that with that card's fan configuration, that heat is going to be blowing straight into your case rather than out the back like a stock cooled card. I would advise you to go back to the Bitfenix because of this or another case to consider is the Antec Three Hundred Two in the price range that will give better cooling and ventilation:

Also, with that motherboard, make sure you put the RAM in before you put the video card in because of the way the levers on the RAM lots work.

Yeah just added my current mobo + cpu that I removed. Out of the two cases you linked + the bitfenix one which would you pick to be the best? I just changed to the Silencio assuming it would be better :p  is there a better amd version of the gtx 570 that stays cooler but still performs as good/better for the same price?

The 570 is the best in that price range. I'm not an AMD fan these days, so I can't recommend them.

The Three Hundred Two is currently out. The other you'd have to pre-order. I'd say the three hundred two is pretty well proven as a solid case. Has good front-to-back ventilation and airflow.

I can just pick it up from a differnet store from around the same price, I seen a comment on it saying the sdd's mounting is a bit so-so, does that mean I need to pick up one of those 3.5" > 2.5" mounts

Yeah. Good catch. My intel SSDs and my case each came with these 3.5 to 2.5" mounts so I've never even considered them. You will need one.

What kind of CPU cooler are you using? This could determine whether or not any of these cases will work for you due to the height of the an air-cooled CPU solution or fan configuration of the case in the case of the low-cost liquid-cooled coolers.

Just a standard fan I believe man, I'm not sure :s wouldn't be anything fancy though a company installed it for me, looks like there's a fan over it though. should i look at buying any other cooling? there's also a fan on back of case sucking air out i think.

Is it a tall heatsink or is it the stock Intel heatsink (Intel brand on the fan?)?

That's the stock cooler. If it's already mounted, you can just leave it. It should suffice since you're not overclocking. You may not like the noise of the stock fan, but you can always replace that later if it gets to you.
