  1. Low Profile RAM, Agility 4 SSD aren't great I would get the Samsung 830 Series 128GB SSD Retail Box for 6$ more.
  2. This Plextor SSD utilizes a Marvell controller and is rock solid.

    Low profile RAM so you don't impede that cpu h/s.

    G.Skill Ares F3-1600C9D-8GAO 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
  3. 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
