Building a Computer

Hey I am a new builder and am looking for some advice from the pros.
I am not looking for any amazing computer but I have picked out some parts.
This will be for a relatively cheap hopefully casual gaming computer.
I am also pretty sure they are all compatible but if not I would like to know.
If I will be bottlenecking on any of my parts (especially my CPU) I would like to know.
Will it be enough ram, wattage, etc.
If there is any to improve it or cheapen without losing quality let me know.
I would like to be able to play at Minecraft, Left4Dead2, TF2, and some other casual indie games from steam on top quality.

Here are my parts:
Motherboard: M5A97
Processor: Athlon II 455 Rana
Graphics Card: Radeon HD 6670
RAM: G. Skill NS 4 GB (2 x2)
Power Supply: Cooler Master GX 450W

Thanks :D

I would up the Power Supply
and the Processor (which may require mobo as well..)

What is your budget
and give me about hour to work up something, hopefully below your budget.
