You could put what you save towards a better GPU. You also could save some money and get a cheaper PSU like the Corsair CX550 (grey and Black Letting not gree) or CX550M. But the G3 is much nicer and I think its worth it to spend on the PSU.
 
Cooler is upto you. For ssd, you can try AMD StoreMI with 2gb system ram and 500gb hdd.
