[New Gaming Rig] - Let me know what you all think!

Hey everyone!

So I put this together quite hastily so I hope it's decent. I'm looking to keep it cheap yet pretty powerful... if there are any corners you think I could cut or optimize any parts please let me know.

I am thinking of ditching the SSD or at least lowering the size.

Here it is:

Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156253
MOBO - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131795
PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817170015
SSD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148580
HDD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148697
GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130652
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103996
RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231402

Thanks in advanced!

    lol, i doubt someone can come-up with something better than that at this price-range. i could do some extreme cost cuts to fit a 7950/GTX660ti in there but its not worth it.
