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
