Looks good but you may want to go a little bigger on the PSU and add an aftermarket cooler if you plan on doing any overclocking.

alright thanks... so 550w PSU(?) and cheap aftermarket cooler for overclocking. Any suggestions?

Stick with Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, or Antec for the PSU. 550W sounds about right. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is a good air cooler and easy on the wallet.

Really that 450W is probably good enough but you don't want to be too low on the PSU. Better safe than sorry. Even a quality 500W should do if budget is tight.
