A 760G motherboard is low end, to say the least. A case and 450W PSU or that price is very questionable. I'd shave off the CPU to a AMD Athlon IIx3 435-440, get a 500 GB HDD

Dump the Corsair for some DDR3-1333 Cas 7 latency

The 460 is ok, but tbh with that PSU I wouldn't trust it. Seriously.

My advice to you is aim a little higher on some of your components.This might delay your purchase for a month but will yield better returns in performance and reliability.
