Question Budget gaming machine - AMD

I'm new to the forums and first of all i would like to say hello to everybody. I am not a native english speaker so maybe i'll have some mistakes in the following post. Ok, let's go :
I have a tightened budget for building a gaming rig.I was thinking of going to AMD platform because of the costs.Here's what i've been thinking of :

CPU : AMD Athlon II X4 631 Quad Core, 2600MHz, socket FM1
MB : Gigabyte A75M-S2V, socket FM1 (i want this motherboard, no other suggestions please, i have my reasons :) )
GPU : Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD6850, 1024MB, GDDR5, 256bit, HDMI, DVI, PCI-E
HDD : Western Digital Caviar Blue KX, 500GB, 16MB, 7200rpm, SATA 3
PSU : Rasurbo Silent-Power DLP-55.1, 550W (Is this enough power?)
RAM : Kingston 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM (Kit of 2x4GB)

I already own a DVD-RW, keyboard, mouse,monitor and W7 x64 Ultimate.
For other informations regarding the CPU + GPU i used this website : and AMD x4 631CPU and ATI HD6850 are the best value components in their opinion.

Do you think that if i buy A8-3850/3800 APU + Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD6850 i will get better performance in games? I will benefit of Crossfire?

Thank you

LE : I want to play : All series of Crysis (1,warhead,2), Mafia 2, GTA IV, Far Cry 2, Fifa 2012, PES 2012, COD: MW 3 and MW 2, Battlefield 3, HoN, LoL, Dota 2, World of warcraft, EVE Online, Assassin's Creed (all series),Hawx, NFS Shift,The Run, Hot pursuit.. etc. and every other game for the next 1 or 2 years.

I plan to later upgrade to a SSD for installing the OS and the game which i curently play.
