Looks good, except the power supply. Raidmax is not known for good units. Get a Corsair, Antec, XFX,OCZ, or Seasonic. Also 600 watts would be plenty of power if you choose one of these Quality brands I have Listed. Here is a link to a nice Corsair unit

Yes I agree for an AMD build it looks good. I agree on the PSU also - stick to a name brand. Personally I like motherboards with built in display ports in case of problems. They're cheaper and just makes it easier to troubleshoot.
Here's a decent one on your platform:

For the power supply I agree on the ther posts. I wouldn't go for that GPU though - the Radeon 6850 performs a bit better and is only $5 more, but it comes with a new Dirt 3 coupon too (its $130 with a rebate) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
