Go buy a coolermaster hyper 212+

If you dont want to spend money, ziptie the antec case fan to the Stock AMD heat sink.

Your temps arnt the best, but they are within acceptable limits, dont worry untell you get to 55c(its still safe), AMD says the MAX Safe Temp to ever hit is 60c(140f). You can get close to this, but its not great to do so. Most people use 55c as a max "safe" temp.

As I said befor, If you dont/or are unable to spend any cash on it, Zip tie/twist tie/what ever you can find that can stand 55c temps, and attach it to the heatsink. I would stongly recomend looking into CoolerMaster Hyper 212+. Its dirt cheap, I payed $25(us) and its loads better than stock.I'll bet body parts your local computer store has them, easy to get!

As for the 450 GPU, I would recomend saving a little more cash and going with a GTX460, They arnt that much more than a 450, and performance is great! You can find them all day long for $100-130 over here, pretty sure you could find one in your price range
