corsair is nice (never had either thoguh) but it makes great quality stuff. and in my experience asus mobos are the best...
nice choice for the hard drive, but 640gb has better value (less cost per GB).

for the psu:
either one:

Where do u live? What page do u prefer for buy?

A good 650W can handle that rig and any future Crossfire that u want install. Just be sure that is from a good brand like Corsair, Antec, PC Power and Cooling, Silverstone, Seasonic or Thermaltake (NOT ALL SERIES)

Shouldn't you buy a modular PSU? I am a novice at this, but with a modular PSU you avoid the clutter of cable inside your case. Just a thought.

My suggestions:
Corsair TX650 (non-modular) or Corsair HX650 (modular) or Seasonic X-650 (fully-modular + Gold Plus + great quality)
