CPU can be bumped up to a i7 ivy bridge but no benefit in gaming. and an i5 will still do good with rendering.
4GB is the sweet spot, its so cheap might aswell get 8GB. the more the merrier depending on how intensive your video and photo editing is.
SSD - optional boot drive and storage for programs like adobe photoshop and a selection of games
Windows 7 - Just assumed its a fresh build. otherwise save yourself a nice 70 quid
750W modular (in this price range it would be daft not to go modular) - more than enough for SLi 670 in the future if you want to go that far.
1TB storage - standard
Mobo - not much to say, pcie 3.0, sli and xfire support.
2GB 670 - Not sure the res your monitors would be so if you use huge res maybe wait for a 3 or 4GB card to come out. 2GB should still be plenty as its a beastly card. no point going for the premium 680 as performance gap in minimal tbh.
case - your choice
Aftermarker cpu cooler - your choice (I would recommend dark rock pro / advanced or the thermaltake frio)
cd drive / blu ray drive - your choice
Go for an IPS monitor since you need the best colours for editing images.
There is no need to spend the full 1.6k unless you want the top of the line stuff.

Read write speed is virtually irrelevant for SSDs. The only thing you should really look for is reliability - which the ocz drives don't have
but the 120gb version has a lot of good reviews, but maybe they were very eager customers.
