Its a future build , right? I would wait for ivey bridge or see if AMD can hit a winner with pile driver. I run a 650 seasonic gold and its been just great. I dont know what the new SSDs will be or when they will be out. But an M4 256gig might be a thought as they are much cheaper right now and they are sata 6g which means serious fast and they are backwards compatable this sata 3g So you could use it now and throw it in a new rig in a few months thumb.gif

Those numbers are from playing BF3 with 4xFSAA and 16AF, both effects are heavy on VRAM usage. If you're playing without AA and AF, then 1 GB of VRAM is going to be plenty, but if you absolutely want to max AA/AF, then yeah, you're going to need additional VRAM. Most people don't consider these effects to be as important, but if the OP wants to use these heavily, then a 2 GB card would be a good choice here.

When you get an SSD there seems to be a lot of variance from manufacturer to manufacturer. Read and write speeds can vary by 100mb. Also some manufacturers have solid products while the other ones can die without warning. I cant recommend one since i don't own one and have not used a PC that has one so just in general keep an eye out for the good/bad reviews.
