Default New Gaming Rig

Hi guys, I've dabbled in computer upgrades before but this will be my first proper build. When I get my pay cheque in January I'm looking to get myself a completely new gaming rig sorted. Begun to draw up a list of components but still need to decide on a few + am unsure of my choices.
Note : I need to this to run as silently as possible.. sick of the noise my current machine generates.

PSU Undecided... Any suggestions?

CASE -- Fractal Design Define R3

CPU COOLER Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev2

CPUIntel Core i5 750 2.66GHz Socket LGA1156


MEMORY Undecided? Any Suggestions?

GRAPHICS CARD Gigabyte GTX 460 OC 1GB GDDR5 OC Edition

HARD DRIVE Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache

OS HARD DRIVE OCZ 60GB Vertex 2E SSD 2.5" SATA-II Read = 285MB/s, Write = 275MB/s 50,000 IOPS ( Ill stick Windows 7 x64 on this)

Looking to spend around ~ 900 or $1420 ( remembering that components can cost a lot more in the UK)

Thanks for any help in advance!
