They have a modular CX750 model that seems to be closest to what I need I guess?

CX is not good at all its low-mid end you got to see the TX/HX Line for something decent. Why not another brand take a look at XFX, Rosewill Capstone, Lepa/Enermax Antec for example...
From corsair go with this at minimum http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7195036&csid=_61

Alright I'll look into the TX/HX series. PSU aside I think I'll be going with 8gb of RAM then going for the SSD with the PSU somewhere in between. I think that sounds like a good plan judging by the responses so far. If anyone else has a good reason to do otherwise, I'm all ears.

Thanks all for your advice!

The Corsar HX/TX models are not really that good bang for buck

Something like a Cooler Master V or a Rosewill Capstone would get you a lot more bang for buck

240gb ssd is available for that price?

Going nice OP but I looked over tigerdirect and couldn't find CM V nor rosewill capstone. Looks like you'll need to go with TX / HX corsair.
