- Instead of Kingston SSD, go for the Samsung 840 Pro.
- Instead of a 'Bronze' label PSU, go for a 'Gold' label.
For the rest it looks like a balanced system that, if properly tuned, may come out around upper quartile Q3.
Why the samsung over the kingston? just because its samsung or for a specific reason?
and the PSU, bronze efficiency is not sufficient?

The Samsung has the best 'steady state' performance degradation at this moment, clearly better than the Kingston, even the Hyper-X version.
650W with a GTX 570 and the intention of overclocking the CPU is around minimum. If the currents delivered are not rock steady and stable, you are asking for trouble. A gold label is more efficient and delivers a more stable current under various loads.
Great! Thanks for the feedback!!
