Already bought these parts but would like to know what you think it be able to achieve before I put it all together.

This will be run in WvW, so hoping big events wont cause huge lag and culling.

Rig
120gb SSD
1tb hard-drive
Asus P8Z77 -M motherboard
Intel Core i5 3470 IVY Bridge 3.2GHZ
EVGA GTX660TI
Cooler Master GX650w PSU
2x 4gb DDR3

Monitors
2x LG IPS234v-PN 23" IPS Monitors  (1920x1080)

This is the first time I've built a pc so have no idea what these specs should be able to run. Any advice?

Are you going to use only one of those monitors or two when playing? also, WvW is a real hog, it takes a well overclocked quad core CPU and at least a GTX670 to even get ~30fps in WvW zergs on a single 1920x1080 monitor at maxed out settings (including super sampling).

It should run just fine in PvE. In WvW and large events you will get an fps drop to about 30 fps, but almost everyone does. :)

If you don't use supersampling on a 660Ti, you'll get ~30fps in large WvW zergs. It won't constantly be at 30fps, but when there will be a lot of people on screen, expect drops to that kind of framerate. As Quaker said, almost everyone experiences those.

Is it just me or what I really hate to see somebody add a luxery item like a SSD when you could spend that money on a better processor like the 3570K and a cheap cooler to actually help the performance some.

You wont notice much difference between a 3470 and 3570 series. .2Ghz isn't much that you'll notice. No point in getting an overclock version if you aren't going to overclock, so when going best bang for buck you pick the cheaper one, seeing as the more expensive doesn't make much of a difference.

The ability to overclock will extend the life of the PC and you would be suprised the differance in performance you would see in this game with a mild 4.2 GHz overclock compaired to a stock 3470. For the best bang for the buck you did not achive that either overpriced PSU and why pay for a z77 mother board if your not going to overclock and one with alot of bad reviews.
