Thanks for the SSD feedback guys. I do agree that the drives are very
expensive for the amount of storage you get, but I am also 90% set on getting one.

I've never owned/put together an AMD PC before, but from first glance this build looks great.
Although, without doing any research into the specific components I can definitely say that I would replace the case & power supply with Antec Sonata III (I have a personal love for the Sonata line and have a Sonata III myself), and would probably opt for the 32GB SSD instead of the 60GB. Like I said, I imagine this SSD will not be used for anything but the OS and a few key programs, so there's not much point shelling out the big bucks for a large capacity.
Will look into this components again tomorrow and if everything checks out will probably go pick up the hardware on Tuesday.
