What will bottleneck what

Hi. I'm new here although I've been reading articles for a while.

This summer I plan on building a gaming rig but don't know for sure if the components will bottleneck somehow.

This is what I plan on getting:

mobo: MSI B75A-G41
CPU: Celeron G1610
graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD6670 1GB/128bit
8GB DDR3 1333MHz

Also, will a 450W PSU handle it?

    You should get a better CPU and GPU. Maybe a i3-3220 and a 7850... what's your budget?

    Not very much... about 300-400$

    I don't wanna play games like Metro 2033, BF3 and whatnot on high details... I only play stuff like WoW, LOL, HoN, KotOR 2.

    This is a very good build for 500
  4. I just figured out I might be able to do it as you suggested if I can sell this old one so... fingers crossed.
    Thanks for the advice.
