So if you plan to get a more powerful video card than your gtx560ti, I would think about getting a better power supply 550-600 watt for single card and a 650-750 watt for dual gpu set up in the future.

I have a corsair force 3 SATA 6gb/s 60gb ssd and I can boot into windows 7 in less than 10 seconds, very happy with the purchase for $99.99. The crucial M4 isn't bad, but it doesn't come with a 2.5 mounting bracket...

I have a 750 watt PSU

I think I'm going to pass on the SSD until I have enough to buy a 120gb or something.

I still have $100 more to spend on this rig though, and I think upping the graphics card is the last thing to do.
