Everything is compatible, however the power supply listed 2x 6+2 pins, your video card needs 2x 6 pins so you wont be able to crossfire your video card until you upgrade your power supply to 4x 6+2 pin, or 4x 6 pin. Here is a link to a power supply that would let you crossfire: Newegg.com - RAIDMAX RX-850AE 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Also, you might wanna consider a case with more fans, that one only has 2 fans, and is not upgradeable, you might wanna consider these 2 cases:
Newegg.com - ENERMAX LuxuRay ECA3192-BS Blue SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
FRYS.com*|*COOLER MASTER

I'd get a better motherboard that supports AM3+ incase you want to upgrade to Bulldozer more easily.
This one is fine: Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
