All good. My only suggestion would be to buy them in combos and tack on a SSD (as always).

I would beef up the graphics a little. The 450 is a decent card, but underpowered. My cousin's husband is running a 4850 and gets great frames on an original Phenom quad, so going with a 5770 or better, or a 460, would set you up sweet.

Don't shop blind on cards, though. Check reviews and warranties before you decide on one. EVGA is only doing a two year warranty on most of their new cards.

Oh, and redfish is right... look for combos where you can.

Default Re: Compatibility Question

this is a little more but is definitely an upgrade to your current list: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more! HD 5770 and XFX 650W PSU. GPU has lifetime warranty, btw
You can get your mobo and CPU in a combo: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
OS and RAM (same as listed): Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
Case and HDD: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
And we saved enough money to tack on SSD without going over. Newegg.com - Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV125-S2BD/30GB 2.5" Desktop Bundle 30GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Magic of combo deals. Best thing since sushi.
