looks good to me.
couple thoughts:

-8gb is truly more than you need for gaming. I would start with 4gb and add 4 later if needed. this will free up some space in your budget as well.

-That video card will not crossfire, just pointing our because you said maybe in the OP. you should get something a bit more powerful especially if you want to play newer games. check out the radeon 6450 or 6550, these are fresh in

edit: for something that will crossfire, you will need to spend ~$150
NVIDIA has lower priced cards that will SLI such as this gts 250 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

if you still have room in your budget, it might be a good idea to get an even better card. What sort of games do you play?

A better video card. Knowing what types of games you play will help (ex. If you play MMOs usually nvidia cards will work better.)

edit: also add an aftermarket CPU cooler such as the coolmaster hyper 212. The stock CPU fan will get noisy and temps will run higher.

A gtx 460 or radeon 6850 would be good choices
