Your build looks pretty good, but I would suggest you go with the Cooler Master EVO cooler definitely over the other cooler you selected. I would also recommend that you go with the Corsair Carbide 200R case, as it has a tool-less design for all drive bays and great cable routing. I would also recommend this Corsair 500 Watt power supply over the Rosewill one.

Here are my links

People who have bad experiences will more likely review a product than people with good experiences.

Also actual DOAs means nothing. RMA it, get a replacement. Now if it were a month and it poops out, I'd be angry.

Do you love the start menu to the point where if it went away, you'd hate Microsoft forever? Windows 7.
Do you want to be up to date and all that jazz? Windows 8.
Do you not give a damn? Windows 7

PCPartPicker may be showing you the minimum you need. eXtreme's big fat number is the recommended, find the smaller one that's minimum. I take eXtreme's with more weight.

Also remember that eXtreme's defaults the utilization of your system to 90%. Even if you're running Crysis 2 on Ultra settings, your computer isn't going to touch 90% utilization. This is more like running FurMark and Prime95 at the same time.

Also don't use "kao moji". It looks silly.

Get a 256Gb, it's the sweet spot for now. You won't regret it. And Truth be told, we will have economical 500GB and 1TB ssd's by the end of the year. Get the 840 Pro, Vector or 830. Test drive 'em here.

is it even worth it to down grade my computer just for a SSD ?

Yes, absopositively! An ssd is the single biggest upgrade you can EVER make right now. But why would you downgrade? What is your budget and current spec? We can fit it all in! ......that's what she said.
