the VS isn't that bad, but its not great. If this is a NEW system you are buying. why are you buying an OLD CPU which isn't supported anymore (as in you can't upgrade)
If you are building a new system, if you state your Country and Budget (kettle lead means UK I am sure) you could get a lot better system than the one you have listed, unless these are parts you already own.

I second that remark by Lutfij
the VS is what you send to enemies for their computers its not what you put in yours.
word of caution about the CX, get the ones with the grey label. if you see green on the CX avoid it is an older model and as bad or worse than the VS.

Definitely go with a higher quality PSU. CX650m, for the higher end graphics cards. Unless you are getting good used deals on those, I would be looking at the GTX1660/1660ti, RTX 2070, and RTX 2080, vs those older pascal cards.

A 1060 doesn't require much power but 450W is cutting it too close. I would say that you need at least 550W to be on the safe side and I'd go with a higher end Corsair CXM or RX, or a Seaonic Focus to be on the safe side.
