Default Help Review My Build and Suggest a Hard Drive

Please let me know ASAP, I need to order before I leave on a trip to FL. =)

What I've bought:
Antec Earth Watts 750 ($80 + -$12 AR) (It's green though... yuck)
560 TI SC ($230 + -$20 AR)

To Buy: - ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard (ASrock Extreme3 Gen3) - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL (GSKILL 8gb) - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7 (Hyper 212) - LG 22X Super-Multi DVD Burner 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model GH22NS90B - CD / DVD Burners (LG DVDRW)

and... a hard drive(s)

I have $90 to Best Buy and I'm having trouble deciding what to get. It's between buying ram and a DVDRW at Best Buy (overpriced) and getting - Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F120GB3A-BK 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (mixed reviews on this product), just buying SanDisk - Ultra SDSSDH-120G-G25 120 GB Internal Solid State Drive - SDSSDH-120G-G25, or finally getting - OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD), and then getting Seagate - Barracuda 1TB Internal Serial ATA Hard Drive - ST310005N1A1AS-RK (I can get for $100 with discount, $10 after gift cards) or Western Digital - 320GB Internal Hard Drive for Desktops - WDBAAX3200ENC-NRSN ($80/free)

My questions:
1. Good Build? Does everything work together? IOW, anything wrong?
2. Will a 3Gbps HDD slow down a Sata3 SDD?
3. Which hard drive(s) should I get?
