What strength numbers should I aim for?

Hey guys, ive been doing the stronglifts 5x5 program for over a month now and seeing some big results. I'm 19, 90kg and 6 foot. Im looking to compete either this year or next and ive quit my training of strength training and met cons together and just doing all strength at the moment until i hit high numbers and then ill be back to doing my fitness. Just wondering how heavy should my lifts be before i get back into my fitness. My 1RM are:-

Squat 150kg
Bench 130kg
Press 80kg
Deadlift 200kg
Snatch 70kg (havn't really been training snatch and clean)
Clean n jerk 100kg

Thanks for your help

Good overall goals for the big 4 lifts are:
200/300/400/500
Press/bench/squat/dead respectively.
Shoot for bodyweight or higher snatch and 1.5 x bodyweight C&J.

You said you want to compete. You mean in CrossFit?

If you got the numbers Sean listed (in lbs) you would be strong enough to hold your own against even high level competitors.
