Gonna build my first computer. Opinions?

Right, so I'm just one click of an Amazon "buy" button away from building a computer. I just want a few opinions on the build before I buy all the parts!

PLEASE NOTE I will not change up anything if it'll result in a price increase. I will only change parts if it could lead to the computer just not working. I don't care if for $20 more I can get 3 or 4 extra fps, I'm a bit of a cheap bastard and I'm willing to admit this. So... yeah, just a warning ahead of time.

AMD FX-4300 -- $105

ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+ -- $50

Video Card
Sapphire Radeon R9 270 -- $140

Kingston HyperX Black 8GB -- $76

Seagate Barracuda 500 GB -- $74

Rosewill Dual Fans -- $30

Power Supply
Antec VP-450 -- $38

Optical Drive
Samsung 24x SATA DVD RW -- $20

Vizio 23" Flatscreen HD TV -- Free, thankfully already own one

Windows 7 64 bit -- $70

Any Old Keyboard -- $25 or so

About $628

As for building the computer itself, anyone have any good video tutorials on it? Any help is much appreciated ^.^

Witty Name Here:

This is one of the better guides I've come across.
As for the build itself it seems ok. I would personally get a better power supply, preferably a Corsair 500 watt. Cheap keyboards are usually much cheaper than $25 you're willing to spend so the money will be best suited for a better PSU.
