Like I said, 450 watts might work, but I wouldn't count on it. If it was a high quality Silverstone or Antec PSU, then it would probably be fine. But a PSU that comes with a case for $50 is not to be considered high quality at all.

550 is to much 450 is just fine, but like freestyler105 said the brand of that PSU is not that high in quality.
