what are your chosen parts thus far? where are you buying them from?
then people can tell what you can keep in the build and what you can change.

i looked at your specs.
if you can with it go for a seagate 64mb cache not 32
corsair are good for ram but i can also recommend kingston and g skill.
OCZ arent good for ssd use samsung,
and avoid using asrock.

Samsung SSD 830 2.5inch SATA III 6GBps 64GB Desktop Accessory Kit with Free Norton Ghost 15 is that the SSD the right one ? & g skill arnt they suppose to be the best out there ? & would I have problems if I just kept with the 32mb instead of getting the 64mb ?

that is a good one and i dont know how much they are in england but here you can get a 256G samsung SSD for about 280-300 AUD, and you wont have any problems at all with your HDD if it isnt 64.
g skill is incredibly good ram but ocassionally has compatibility issues so i would recommend kingston or corsair but if your mobo works with g skills you should get it.

Don't take advice off one person, you need a balanced argument

I personally like OCZ.

Reviews on the net at the individual items are the best.

Just because one item is bad, doesn't mean others are.
