Looks ok from a glance, I would switch the gfx card up to something like a 9800GT you will be better off with the extra power than going with underpowered ATI cards and trying to crossfire them. If you want to go ATI it would be worth it to pony up the cash for a 4850 its a mile better than a 3850.

How much more would a 9800GT cost? I'm don't really care if the card is an ATI or NVidia, as long as it plays games nicely. I have an old Radeon X1550 Pro now, 512MB Ram, and it plays some games okay, I can get about 45 fps playing WoW on the highest settings.
