Wow! over 200 views and not a single post?
Did I do something wrong here? Are these parts compatible?

looks like a typical build. should do nicely.
I'd consider going with a single 470 instead of 2 450s, about the same power usage, about the same capability, but you have an upgrade path. Otherwise, go for it as is.
