That is very nice indeed :)  However, i would suggest you might want a little more ram. While the 4gb should be just about enough for most games, its always nice to have a little extra for the operating system to use as it likes and store copies of files accessed reguly to speed up the system a little.
I'd reccomend getting 2 4gb sticks of ram

Otherwise, it looks great! I own the fx-6300 and i have no complaints whatsoever. I have heard nothing but good about the 270 and 280x cards, and the hyper 212 evo is widely held to be a really great cooler.
