£600 gaming/streaming (but probably not streaming) rig.

So for £600 I wanted an SSD, a huge hard drive for my ever-growing Steam library, and a Corsair case to submit to OCD in matching my K70 RGB and M65. I'll primarily be gaming on a 1080p monitor or my TV, however I may/may not do some Twitch streaming. I've gone for Windows 7 because I understand it, and I've gone for the Adata SSD because it's currently the cheapest 120GB+ drive I can find. I already have my GTX 670, used from a friend, and the H55 is refurbished.
