All the parts seem to be compatible and the wattage is fine. The psu is a bit overkill, but it is always nice to have headroom in case you add more components. So ya, you should be good to go.

Oh, and the cooler master cooler is pointless. You get a cooler almost exactly like the cooler master cooler with the cpu so there is no point in buying it.

If your planning on not overclocking then you can use the cooler that comes with the cpu. However, if you do plan on overclocking I would suggest getting a more high end cooler. Maybe something like a cooler master hyper 212 evo. And, the cpu already comes with a cooler almost identical to the cooler master one you linked above so you should just use the one that comes with the processor if your not overclocking.

Ok, so finally i have figured out what i need
here goes the specs :

Corsair 400R Mid Tower Cabinet
Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO Cooler
HIS AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X GPU 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
Seagate Barracuda 500 GB Desktop Internal Hard Drive (ST500DM002)
ASRock 970 Extreme 4 Motherboard
AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor
Seasonic S12II 520 Watts PSU
G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC RAM (F3-12800CL9S-4GBXL) x 2

Just one question is the "HIS AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X" compatible with the motherboard as it is PCI-E 2.1 Bus std and the sapphire one is 2.0 std ????
