i think i've done a nice job here xD, or it's just a mess?

Mostly good
BUT

Buy a 2 x4 gig kit of 1600 MHz , 1.5 volt or less, RAM

You need a 600 watt psu at most so you can save enough there to include a 40 -60 gig SSD as a cache drive .

^ I second what outlander_04 said defiantly get 1600MHz RAM, unless your going to do crossfire AND overclock your CPU over 1GHz you won't need 800W PSU you could go with a 600-650W PSU and save money.
