It would seem you don't need it to do gaming?
PSU can be 400-450W if your not going to put a powerful video card in unless you want modular?
Go with faster RAM
Go with a GIGABYTE or ASUS for Motherboard.

I plan on using the computer as more of a workstation than anything else. The most intensive things I do are running a lot of virtual machines and doing some video and photo editing on the side. I'm beginning to wonder if I need a dedicated video card; is the Intel HD Graphics 2500 chipset on the processor sufficient?
As far as the power supply, I'd prefer to have a modular one, just to keep the clutter inside the case to a minimum, but I don't have to have one. I've looked into faster RAM, and am going to go for it; the price difference is negligible.

That's one of the SSDs that I've looked into today. Seems to have gotten decent reviews. I do notice that this SSD, like most others I've come across are 2.5" drives. Will I need any special adapters to fit this into my case? And along those lines, my old hard drive is an IDE drive which I'd like to use for data storage. Next to no new motherboards that I've seen have IDE connectors, so I'll have to get an IDE to SATA adapter, right?
I currently have an OCZ SSD and haven't had any issues with it. I would recomend you get this instead.
