SSD: Corsair SSD Force Series 120GB 2.5"
Do you still have time to amend your order... a Corsair Performance 3 SSD -for an extra bill- would take advantange of the MoBo's SATA III connectors.

Is it at all possible that running the game through Steam somehow limits performance? I'm on a 8 mbit connection.
Doubtful. Steam is bloatware, but it has a small footprint.
