You will need to list the rest of your components so we can help you with this, you can also check any PSU calculator:

450w should be just about right then but as i said try the PSU wattage calculator as it will be more accurate since it takes everything into account(USB Devices, DVD Roms, Fans etc...).

And btw just an advice i am reading negative reviews and that PSU you mentioned there so if budget allows it you might wanna go with something more reliable like Crosair, Antec, and XFX.

I think so yes, i was just using it as a reference but i never bought from it. Much cheaper from local stores due to shipping etc...
