I prefer the NZXT Phantom's looks, but that's just me.

Go with an ASUS P8P67 PRO or a Sabertooth P67... Z67 doesn't add anything for gaming.

You can cut the SSD if you want to. Don't need them yet, really.

Go with a Superclocked Classified 570 from EVGA, will improve performance a lot.

You don't need a 850w PSU unless you go SLI. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139021

Hope this helps!

NO dont through out the SSD that is most important without it your HDD will bottleneck the entire system that the best part of the build =) I agree with qwerty on the board the P67 Sabertooth is very nice and looks HOT! Personally if it where my choice i would settle for a gigabyte Z68 chipset board.
