Default New Computer Build

Can you guys check my setup and see if all the parts are compatible?
And will the PSU run it all with no problem or is it an overkill?

Coolermaster CAC-T05
CoolerMaster eXtreme Power 650W Model:RP-650-PCAR
2x Samsung DL DVD+-RW
All in One Multi Card Reader
WD 750GB SATAII HDD
4GB Kit(2x2G)DDR2 1066 Kingston
PHENOM II Quad Core 920 -
Radeon HD 4670
GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P AM3/AM2+/AM2 -

Thanks in advance. How long will this rig run for before I have to upgrade it?
( And one last quuestion, Is the case easy to open to change parts?

EDIT: Will the 550W Extreme Pro be enough?

650 will be more than enough. The 4670 only requires 400W.

The 4670 is actually your weakest link in the build. A 4830 would serve you longer, or a 4850. All depends on your budget.

Thanks for the reply. So I could get a 550W or even a 450W PSU. And it would run well?
And thanks for the suggestion but I'm planning to slowly upgrade as time goes.

I have a big favour to ask. Can someone check if the PSU works with the other parts especially the cables..
# Motherboard Power Connectors: One 24-pin connector and one ATX12V connector.
# Video Card Power Connectors: One 6-pin connector.
# Peripheral Power Connectors: Five, one cable with three standard peripheral power connectors and one cable with two connectors.
# Floppy Disk Drive Power Connectors: One.
# SATA Power Connectors: Three.

Sorry for the double post.
A big thanks in advance.
