Yes. The minimum is 350W

Yours will do.

What are the amps on the 12v rail(s) THAT'S the deciding factor...

For two GeForce 7600 GT-based graphics cards running in NVIDIA SLI configurations, a minimum 400W PCI Express compliant system power supply (with 12V rating of 24A) is recommended

450 is plenty, the question is.. how much amperage is on the 12v. if it has atleast 18 I imagine it would suffice for one single GPU.
