I would suggest you another CPU, you are better of if oyu overclock a little and go with a 4670k or even 4690k depending on your budget, OC gives you mroe bang for you budget.

As for the SDD, i would recommend getting a Samsung EVO 840(Samsung MZ-7TE120BW), 120gb will be fine.

You can cut a bit of cost in terms of your Optical Drive, you barely gonna need the Bluray/it at all.

If you are gaming, i would recommend LAN, but yeah, guess thats pretty much it.
