So I decided to build my own computer now that my current is a bit dated. I'm new to it but I've got experience upgrading parts, etc, and have done some research on building a computer.
What I'm asking of you is: Will all of these parts work together? I'm going for more of a gaming rig but not an awesome everything-on-ultrahigh-graphics gaming rig. Here's my list:

Case:
Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
http://newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681114...

HDD:
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(Went for more of a smaller size because I don't use that much as it is and already have a sufficient external hard drive. However if you suggest I go for a larger size give reasons why.)

GPU:
HIS H467QR1GH Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU:
LOGISYS Computer PS600A12 600W ATX SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM:
Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model KHX1333C9D3B1K2/4G
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU+MOBO:
AMD Athlon II X3 450 Rana 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX450WFGMBOX
bundled with:
1x BIOSTAR TA880GB+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD

CD/DVD Drive:
Samsung SH-S222A 2MB

Also, is there anything better I could choose for relatively the same price, what are your suggestions to make the build better, and how should I prepare for building the computer? Thanks for the help.

What is your budget? Do you need to buy windows as well?

I'll probably be buying Windows 7. My budget is around $500 but it can go over if absolutely necessary.

ah yes, well that is quite a pickle. im afraid i have one more question, do you live near a microcenter?

if not, i suppose youre not going to do too much better with that budget. youd be amazed what an extra hundred bucks can do.
this ram is good and cheaper:
