Low Profile RAM, Agility 4 SSD aren't great I would get the Samsung 830 Series 128GB SSD Retail Box for 6$ more.

I would get a Corsair HX650 power supply. Much better than your current on. Of all the components in your build, the power supply is arguably the most important.

The Agility 4 is great bang for buck, but there are many mixed feelings about OCZ. I would choose the Samsung 830 or even the Intel 520s.

Your other choices look great. Hope this helps
