245 and a 4670? you wont be doing a whole lot of gaming on that.

if you lower settings to bare minimum you may get decent framerates. but icant imagine youll be able to win many MW2 games on that.
dont mean to sound harsh, but thats just not good. id highly recomend waiting a little longer and spending a little more. if you can get up to a 620/550 proc, with a 5770 gpu, youll be doing well.

wow yeah thats a good deal on that case+psu combo, really worth the extra 10 bucks. i recommended that combo because i personally have that psu and have tortured the crap out of it, but it uses really basic technology and the build quality is just acceptable. both the case and psu gkay09 listed are really high quality, in another league and cheap too, bonus!
