My main concern is if the PSU I might buy will work for the entire system.
I also plan to try to unlock the 4th core.

CORSAIR Builder Series CMPSU-500CX 500W:

MSI 870-G45 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard:

XFX HD-575X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5750:

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333:

ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler:

AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz 3 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor:

That PSU will be fine as you are using one GPU. No mention of a hard drive, but the rest looks fine. Samsung Spinpoint F3 is a popular choice for a spindle drive...

Just to give you a heads up, unlocking the 4th core is a gamble (mine wasn't stable). So don't base your purchase expecting a quad core. Also I would say bump up to a 5770 it is worth the couple extra bucks.

Yes it'll run but there are certainly better options for the same if not a few bucks more.
