I am currently developing my first magento project and for my uses i have selected the following extensions. Some areas are obviously blank as i have not found good options and i have placed any personally concerning areas in bold.

What i want is your opinions on my selections and where i may be lacking in functionality or another extension may do it better.

I hope to get some good feedback on this, as i know there must be many other people in the same boat

Facebook\twiter\G+ like\share integration -
main slideshow -
Best seo extension\s -
internal Search improvment (i hear the magento search is crap) -

Advanced Reports - Ahead Works- $129
Gift Certificates - Unirgy_Giftcert - $125.00

Inventory and order fufilment - uDropship - $950
Checkout - IWD one step checkout - Free - i dont know this extension but it seemed to work well with full ajax support. Should i move to a name brand extension?

Order comments - Magemaven OrderComment - Free
Image lightbox - LightBox2 - Free
JS AND CSS speed - Fooman speedster- Free
WebShopApps MatrixRate - Shipping enhancement - Free
Points Program - self coded
Ajax Cart - self coded

Thinking about it now, i would love to hear also about anything i should add to this list to add to extra important or business critical functionality. Cheers
