The graphics card certainly will not be bottlenecked by the CPU.
Which games were you planning on playing with this, you may want to invest in a 460 if you can squeeze the extra cash.

Thanks Domestic, The games I plan on playing are mainly Valve games such as Portal 2, half life 2, left for dead but occasionally ill play call of duty black ops. I'm looking to spend max 100 - 110 on a card so if you can find a 1gb 460 please let me know, but I think for the games i play this system will be more than enough.

You're right, the 450 is fine for those games. Can easily buy a new card later on down the road too.
