I'm looking to buy budget Photoshop CS5 workstation with gaming capabilities.

I newbie to hardware, and this the first rig I'm trying to put together.
I used this article and the forum to to choose these parts:
Without win 7, case, PSU, and ODD my budget is around 650$
Just a quick preliminary system from newegg I put together:

CPU:AMD Athlon X4 3Ghz 100$
Memory: 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 100$
Boot Drive:SSD boot drive 130$
Storage Drive:1T Storage Drive 90$
Video Card:Nvidia GeForce 9800 115$
Mother Board:AMD Motherboard 100$
Over all 635$

I'm wondering if these components have any compatibility issues?
would you buy something else in this budget for my purpose?
or what would you change and why?

Thank you

450 will cut it at 1440x900 or below in resolutuion. 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 at lower settings

a 460 will handle 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 at high/ultra settings at most games
