If memory serves me right, that was a bundle deal a day or two ago so not much option to change out parts in it for the price (was pretty cheap if I recall)
As for the parts, not too bad of a start. Personally would have went another way with the build if I had a GTX 460 like you do (either AM3+ with an FX or preferably Haswell's low end to give real upgrade options later) but it's hard to do much better for the kind of money Newegg does most of those shell shocker combos for.
Like others have mentioned, the APUs like the fastest ram you can give them if using the integrated video, but if you do use the GTX 460 that wont matter. That power supply might not be up to the task of adding in a video card though. I'm not sure who actually makes it and haven't had one in person from Logisys in a long time. If they haven't changed though it's really closer to a 300w PSU that if you add EVERYTHING for it to possibly output at different times (not together) and round you MIGHT hit 450w so yeah...I wouldn't hope for much but should run the included parts for awhile. I would just make plans to upgrade it along with whatever else you do later first thing.
Actually I just did some looking around and per the pic on newegg that PSU is rated according to the lanel @ 330w COMBINED for the 12v/5v/3.3v and that's with a max of 16A on the 12v portion (where a modern PC draws power) so ~200w. In all honesty it's a steaming pile of poop for a PSU that is likely to be the cause of problems down the road if not out of the box considering we're starting with a 100w (max not actual) CPU.
