Will the HSF (CPU fan) include the proper mounting bracket for the AMD3 socket i belive the motherboard has??
Yes, the HSF has a bracket for the AM3 chip. With the Hyper 212+, you actually remove the standard AMD bracket and install it's own retaining bracket, which to me is better than the standard AMD method (little more work though )
Feedback I've received on the Scout is that it won't fit cards larger than 10.5", so you may have issues with the 5850. For little more, I would upgrade to the HAF922 case.
I would look to upgrade your RAM to a Cas7, due to the tighter timings. I would recommend the G.SKILL ECO 4GB DDR3 1333. The rest of your build looks solid...
Thank you very much tecmo34! Your guide on PC Builds by usage also helped me decide on what parts I got. Also, later on when I actually acquire the parts, I'll be using your other guide to set it all up. Once again thank you.

The monitor is full HD 1080p, larger screen as well. The motherboard supports CrossX at dual 8x lanes, and has USB 3.0 and Sata 3.0, and the AMD 955 BE is the newer c3 stepping. And Lian Li is suppose to make high quality cases and will fit the 5870 card, the case even states the maxium card length in the description.
If you want a different case the PSU has a combo with multiple dvd-rw drives such as this (below), and even the one you already have selected (so at the very least choose that option and save yourself some money if your going with your build). So choose the case you like best.
