For gaming this will be good, but you can get better components. If you live near a microcenter they have the Phenom II X4 with motherboard for $100. The money you save will allow you to get a better GPU, since the 460 is a bit weak. It's $140, and for $150 get the 6870 which can run BF3 at Ultra and is a lot more powerful:

And that AMD memory is a ripoff. Most 8GB Ram kits are $40. Get either one of these RAM kits (The microcenter one is slightly slower):

And 600W is pretty overkill. Get 500W.

Looks pretty good, the PSU is strong enough, you could get away with a quality 500w if you wanted.

What is the purpose of this build? For gaming? The AMD APUs are not that powerful and really only worth while if using the on-chip integrated graphics. Otherwise if I were you I would get a Phenom II X4 965BE or an Intel core i3-2120.
