For the SSD's, you can use Crystal Disk Mark to test their speed, then compare to what others have been getting.
RAM is just making sure that the right settings are enabled. Just jump into the BIOS and make sure the XMP is enabled.
Run 3DMark11 to get a general system graphical performance benchmark. Theres a free basic version, again just compare to what people with similar systems are getting.
Agreed though i would say also run DX11 Heaven because that seems to give a very accurate representation of the GPU performance as well as test the stability of your GPU,
Are you overclocking?
also run a game such as bf3 or any other demanding game, turn off vsync, and run the MSI afterburner overlay that should give you a GPU usage which if it is ever below 99% and is getting low FPS(really anything below 60) then you may have a CPU bottleneck.
