Hah... I really, really, don't think it will. I'd get at least a 500 watt setup for that. My setup is a little bit less demanding than yours (see signature) and I'm running an Aspire Concord 500 watt power supply with absolutely no problem. This thing is rock solid. I highly recommend.

I would go 600 watt so you dont have to buy another in the near future. I hear Antec makes some killer ones.

I'd say that the 450W psu is enough.

Don't get a Q-Tek they like to melt (see thread: How to melt a power supply), but even so I'd be looking at least a 500w (good make) power supply for that lot.

Make sure you have enough amps on 12V for the graphics card. I would say at least 30 to be safe. If you plan to SLI, get a SLI PSU.

Yep, that's right. The Aspire Concord has something around a 34 amp 12 volt line.

My MGE Vortec 500W also has 24Amps on 12V. IT's only 80 bucks too.

OCZ makes the best psu's out there. Yeah, it's very unhealthy to run a psu at 90% of its max frequently, so, unless you want to be changing psu's a lot, I would suggest either a turbo cool 550+W, or, if you have the money, any ocz psu.
