Is this a good CPU+GPU+MOBO+PSU combo?

Hey guys. Im just a bit worried about my choices. Would you mind judging this combo for me? I really want to be on the safe side when I try to build my first pc.

CPU: Pentium G2020 (im on a low budget)
MOBO: ASUS P8B75-M LE
GPU: POWERCOLOR Radeon HD 6850 (or 7850 depending on the psu)
PSU: Antec VP450 450W

Thanks in advance. :)

  1. That should all work together, I would opt for the HD 7850 in there
  2. Why the 7850? Because of its lower power consumption? If so, would the antec provide sufficient power for the 6850?

    Partially lower power consumption but mostly because Tom's shows the 7850 as three tiers higher in capability here http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html

    But the 6850 is still good right? I kinda want it more than the 7850 because its cheaper and im on a budget.

    The 6850 is a decent graphics card and a little over a year ago, I would've been quick to recommend it. The 6850 does use about 50W more than the 7850 at load but I think the Antec should work for that also
