    I don't see any compatibility issues.

    If its a gaming rig you might consider HD 7800 series graphics.

    What will you be using the PC for if it's not gaming?

    Considering the prices of the CPU, mobo and RAM you picked you'd almost certainly be better off with an Intel system for the same price. Also you don't need anywhere near an 850W PSU if you're not running multiple high end graphics cards, 500W will be fine.

    I agree, unless you plan on upgrading again to a system that requires more power you should get a different psu. No less than 450, no more than 600 watts.
