Building a moderate gaming rig. How does this one look?

I am building a moderate (or maybe light... I shall leave that to your better judgement) gaming rig with these specs:
  • CPU: AMD 3.5Ghz AM3+ FX 6-Core Edition FX-6300 (FD6300WMHKBOX) Processor
  • Mobo: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 (This one also has EVO and PRO versions, but I don't understand the difference. Can anyone help me?)
  • GPU: Confused between these two: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC Eyefinity 2.0, 1 GB GDDR5 MSI Radeon HD 7850 Twin Frozr III OC, 2 GB GDDR5 Will Probably buy the cheaper one. Do present your cases though. (I was also thinking about a Zotac/Asus GTX 650 Ti Boost, but they are probably no match for these)
  • RAM: Kingston HyperX DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX) (I could also go in for Corsair Vengeance, if that's cheaper.:??: )
  • PSU: Two choices here: Corsair CMPSU-600CXV2UK 600 Watts PSU Seasonic S12II 620 Watts PSU (I hear Seasonic is the OEM of Corsair?)
  • HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2 TB (ST2000DM001) or WD Blue WD10EZEX 1 TB or WD Caviar Green 2 TB (WD20EZRX) ????
  • CPU COOLER: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO Cooler
  • Lastly, the CASE/CABINET: I seriously have no idea about this. Maybe this one: Antec X1. But I am not sure paying Rs. 2500 (~US $40) is way to go. BTW I don't require anything fancy. The only requirement is good ventilation.

Let me know if I left out anything. Thanks in advance.

Sorry if I put on the specs a bit late. Very sorry.

    Even you can play hide and seek with it.
    tell your specs to hide somewhere and you will never find them in your entire life.
    Do it on your own risk.
