Nope, you can't. A better PSU is needed. Specific model depends on your budget.

Yes I am. Unless the GX450w you got is made after 2012 ( since there are 2 variants of this model ), the chance that something in your system blow up when you plug in the HD5870 ( which consumes over 200w itself ) is quite high.
