I would go for the Corsair TX650v2 :)

Deffinately would go for a name brand PSU, although I know nothing of the quality of the PSU that you are thinking of getting :p 

The PSU is the foundation of every PC!

Yeah get a better PSU.
I would go with the Hyper 212 instead of the scythe.
Lastly I would go with a Western Digital Caviar Black instead of that seagate, just because seagate = 1yr warranty, WD = 5yr warranty.

Solid build, I would just look into these recommendations.

Im siding with azeem about the PSU, Enermax does make some good PSUs, that one in particular. And with three 12v rails with 50A shared, the power rating is accurate.

As far as your build goes, guy, I like it, good choices on all the parts, I am not crazy about the OCZ Vertex 4, but aparently the 1.5 Firmware fixed some issues with it, so that is good, so its still not a bad choice.
