Definitely the Crucial M4 SSD first. That will quicken up boot times and load times by a WHOLE lot and will generally allow for more responsive gaming.

Next I would suggest the Hyper 212 EVO. Basically that will allow you to overclock and unlock the performance from your CPU. but I would suggest overclocking until you get this, so that the temps won't get too high.

After, basically it's on a preference basis. But in my opinion, I would get the case fans first to make sure everything is cool, then I would get a mouse and then I would get a keyboard. My theory behind this is basically there are a ton of mouses that impede your gaming abilities, but there aren't that many keyboards that impeded your gaming.
