For reliabilty go for a Crucial M4 128 GB since OCZ is the highest RMA rate for SSD's atm

But other then that, a very similar build to mine, you will enjoy it

if anythign was going to be picky on the build, the ram speed is partially unessesary, and a 850w silver psu is over necessary for a 560ti, even in sli.
