Is an Antec VP450-P good enough for a i5 3470 and gtx 650ti boost setup?

How will a VP450P respond to a stock i5 with a 650 ti boost, and how will it hold up with slight GPU overclocking in the future?

    A good supply over 400W is enough for your system.
    The Antec VP450 is actually very good for the price, but not as efficient as better supplies.

    If the VP450 is the most you can afford, it is a good choice.
    If you can afford spending a little more, look at the Seasonic S12II 430.
  2. I have actually bought that Antec VP450P, and was wondering if it would allow me to overclock my GPU, as I am fine with a locked i5.

    The power supply won't prevent you overclocking the GPU.
    Just remember that you need to cool the graphics card well and that the overclock may reduce the life of your graphics card.
