I am ready to purchase these for my first build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/tid3

But I'm worried about:
1. Bottlenecking, I don't know much about it but I have a hunch the CPU and GPU might cause some trouble.
2. Power Supply, I don't know if 450 watts will be sufficient for everything. (I am not overclocking)
Any advice is much appreciated.

Any reccomendations for a PSU? I cant really go above $740 so no i5 yet. Would something from AMD's FX series be better?

I would go with the Western Digital Caviar Black. It is $20 more than the Seagate but the warranty is 5 yrs instead of 2 yrs.
