Will all these pc components run well together? - suggestions plz

im on the verge of building a new pc, my whiplash moneys on its way into the bank and been gagging to get into gear.

athlon 630 x4 - dont want an intel their jingle does enough to warrant me avoiding them
4gb dd3 - got from the play deal
Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H 785G Socket AM3
Coolermaster Elite 330 Case With Coolermaster eXtreme Power 460W PSU

what would be the best heatsink/fan combo for the processor? as in best value mainly, that does a good job.

hard drives and dvd drives i dont need, would this graphics card suit this system also? hotukdeals.com/ite…2mb

arctic freezer pro
but i dont know if htat works for athlons (might be a intel only socket)
the 4870 would be a good choice too

The power supply might be a bit marginal with 312W @ 12V, The Athlon II X4 is ~100W and the 4870 ~130W, add everything else you've got to power from the 12v line and a bit of ageing and you may have trouble down the road.

would a gts 250 take less power and similar performance? cheers
