PSU is a bit overkill and it would be a shame to have this rig without an SSD.

Whatever is your budget. Samsung 830, Intel 520, Crucial M4, Corsair Force GT, or last but certainly least on my list a Vertex 4. Listed in terms of reliability. Possibly swap the first two but to me they are tied.

Write speed is slower than normal, but most Crucial drives are that way. Still a good drive.
