There are much better PSUs for $60. If you don't want to overclock get a i5-2400 and H67 instead. Right now the HD 6850s cost more than 460 1GBs when they should cost the same so keep that in mind.

Yes but there are better power supplies for $60. Everything else looks fine for the most part except your lack of aftermarket cooling.
