Looking for an expert's advice/opinion on 1st custom build

Hi all!

Here are links for the components i'm planning on using for my first custom build. Would like an experts opinion on the set up, does it make sense and will the rig work when put together.
Also i'm wondering will the PSU I've chosen support 2nd graphics card(want to run them with CrossFireX), SSD and a CPU/memory upgrade in the future?

    Drop the High profile ram , because you will need a cooling solution for a FX chip.
