    I like all of those choices :)
    Pretty much what I would get myself

    The HDD is among the fastest, the PSU by seasonic [though I like corsair as well] the ram is a nice kit provided you're getting it at a good price
    MB is the cheapest to have decent OC ability and USB3 headers and backpanel
    Consider getting an AMC for the CPU
    The 7850 2gb is a good GPU for the budget
    I would get the CM 431 plus though as it has front panel USB3

    Price right now is a bit over your $600 budget
