^ Hmm...
Some suggestions -
1. CASE - Why not go little cheap on the case and invest in a more powerful graphic card ? Not that 6850 is slow, but for 1080p, the 6870 would be better...
So check out cases like NZXT Gamma/ Antec 200/ CM Elite 430, these are cheaper but still offer good airflow and features...

2. PSU - Dont skimp on the PSU's quality...
Get a PSU from Seasonic/ Silverstone/ Corsair/ Antec EA or TP series/ Real Power or Silent PRO series only from Cooler Master/ PCP&S/ OCZ Fatality or Modextreme or StealthExtreme II series...

Rest looks good...

How about a seasonic S12D 750w, also how many watts will I need to run my pc setup with the 6870 or 6850? Thank you!

EDIT: Dint refresh...If you have room for those boards in your budget, then you can go for those...

^ You cant go Crossfire on that 870A board as the 2nd PCIe slot runs crippled @ x4, so you can use 1 graphic card at the max...
So for a single card, you wont need a 750W PSU, get 500-550W from Seasonic, it would suffice...

great economical system you got there

but with all other components the CM extreme is a really bad choice
why dont you go with corsair (have been using the vx550 and its great)or CM real power/silent (if you have to go with CM)

It can easily power HD6850 no issues, actually it is good enough for even 6870/ 5870...
