It looks pretty good. I would personally spend a bit more for a better quality PSU but other than that it looks fine.

WD Black HDD isn't really worth it. The Caviar Blue is sufficient enough.

A Corsair HX, Antec, XFX or Seasonic PSU would be better (preferably Silver+, Gold+...). CX PSU's are generally poorly made and not the best efficiency-wise.
