Default New Build

Hey guys.. about to order everything for my second build and as Im somewhat new to this I was hoping someone could look over everything for me and make sure it's all compatible and good to go. Thanks in advance for your time

Cooler Master Elite 430 RC Case
Cooler Master Elite 460 RS Power Supply (460watts)
Asus M4N68T-M V2 Micro ATX AMD mobo
AMD Phenom II x3 Black Edition Heka 2.8 GHz (AM2 Socket)
Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 1TB 3.5" SATA
G.SKILL Ripjaw 2 x 2GB DDR3 1600 Ram
Liteon 24x Dvd Writer Sata
HIS Radeon HD 5450 1GB

The main things im worried about is A.) Do i have enough wattage? B.) The mobo has a NVIDIA chipset and I want to add a Radeon card and C.) Is this particular DVD burner going to do everything i.e. cd-rom, dvd-rom, dual layer burner, cd burner.

sorry.. i guess i should include links for everything:

I think you should up the power supply a bit just to be safe. You don't want to get it and then it not power up. Remember you also have to power up a monitor so that add's to it. A 550w or 600 should work.
As for B and C, I will let someone that is good with ATi answer.
Just a little tip I would avoid getting the Seagate if at all possible. They tend to be the worst made out of the HDD manufacturers. I haven't had good luck with mine and I found out the hard way.
