Is the power supply I have chosen good for my build? I plan on doing some GPU overclocking as well as using the ASRock overclock feature to overclock the i3. Is the PSU I chose a good fit and reliable?

I would recommend a Pentium G4560 which is half the cost for the same performance and change the motherboard to a simple 4 RAM slot B250 model with a DRR-2400 stick which will be able to help your PC's performance.

The Nitro is a good card and the case is decent. I would add an SSD to help with boot & loading times and round it up with a better quality Corsair CXM 450W.

IS the 450W really enough for Video Card & CPU OC?

The TDP is only 299, even ith an oc, you wont hit 400w.

The 650W BQ isn't good, its out done by the CXM for less.
