Looks really solid. But if you really aren't going to crossfire, save yourself a few dollars and get:
Gigabyte 870 - 110:
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=52049&vpn=GA-870A-UD3&man...

Truthfully though if you want this to last 4-5 years you might as well keep the 890 board you've listed incase you want to boost performance by adding another 5870.

You forgot to pricematch your CM 690: (69.99)
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Also maybe consider the new CM II 690 Basic version. (looks a bit better, better cable management, front ports are placed in a better place IMO but you lose like one fan (it only comes with 2 compared to 3 in the regular 690))
Cheapest I can find is 71.50:

Edit

Also the Antec Earthwatts 650W: (77.54)
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=1037184382G&v...

or go for the modular version of it:
Antec Truepower New 650W (96.99)
http://ca.buy.com/PR/Product.aspx?sku=210735603

Go for a 750W if you consider crossfiring though to be safe.
and get it quick before HST?
