I hope that isn't sarcasm :(

I looked over on newegg:

Max Sequential Read: 550 MB/S Max Sequential Write: 510 MB/S

Seems pretty fast, but I have no experience with that SSD to recommend or not.

It isn't. It could be said that SSD and the Kingston Hyper X 3K are Tek Syndicate approved. And try to get this PSU for it's rating: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-capstone650

High clock speed: 1.1ghz, 3GB of VRAM, and good reviews. The GPU is quite good

A 64gb SSD won't serve you anything but a boot drive, just thought I'd say that

I was planning to just use it as a boot drive. Would you suggest still upgrading to the 128gb?

Is there a GPU you'd pick over this one at the price range?

At that price, not at all. That's a very good card. The only thing equal to it is the evga 670 FTW sig 2 which is clocked at 1.01ghz, sure it overclocks like a monster and it's 50-50 with the cards but I'd go with the gigabyte card on this one. Trying not to let personal preference cloud my judgement

If its just for a boot drive your fine, but usually people like storing their most used programs and games on the SSD as well

Gigabyte and Sapphire would be my top 2 choices. The Gigabyte is clocked higher and costs less, So I think you picked the best one. Good Luck!
