Default Building New Computer

Hey all im new to the forum and building computers but hope you can help. I want to build a new computer, i have what i think are all the parts i want. I would like ye're opinions on them and any problems ye think ye might see with them.

Components:
Motherboard - ASUS Sabertooth x58 - LGA 1366 - ATX
CPU - Intel i7 950
Ram - Corsair XMS3
Graphics/Video Card - ASUS GeForce gts 450
PC Case - Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus
Power Supply - ATX Simplepower 630 Watt
Side Panel Fan - Antec fan tricool 120mm
Top Panel Fan - Antec 200mm fan big boy 200

I will be using a dvd/cd drive and a hard drive from a previous computer. I will be using it for online gaming, mainly lotro and rift. And also for animation, using Blender and 3ds Max. I will be getting help putting it together as im very new to it. Any comments anyone can give would be appreciated greatly

if you want to go with Nvidia and i can see you kinda are in a budget becouse you did choose so low end graphic card.
in i cheep prise range i will go with the 550 or the 560.
check some benchmarks,
i did buy a 570. realy powerfull card. crysis 2 with max graphic at HD ressulution. no problem.

Thanks for that, am gonna get myself a gtx 550. The 560 way to far out of my price range

Also how do i get the right power supply needed? is there any good website out there that can let me input all the parts i will be getting and tell me the minimum wattage i need. I have used neweggs calculator to help me calculate the old power supply but it aint got the gtx 550 on it
