MOBO: MSI 970A-G46
CPU: AMD FX 6350
SHELL: Thermaltake A21 case
GPU: CURRENTLY HD 6450
RAM: 2 Patriot 4GB DDR3 sticks
PSU: Antec 450w
HDD: WD 1 TB (5400 rpm I think)
FANS: 2 (One with the shell and additional Antec 120mm)

I just built my first computer and I was so eager to become a PC gamer that I didn't realize my GPU won't support many games. I was wondering if there was any possible way to get an R7 260x GPU with my setup and if not, what should be my fallback GPU? Like I said, I just built this and I do not want to upgrade the power unless I absolutely have to.

Yes, you should be ok. That card wants a 6pin pci-e connector and 16A on the +12v rail. If you are unsure whether or not your psu has the pci-e connector or how many amps it puts out, give us the model number and I (or someone else) will help you confirm.

My booklet says VP450F. I think that's the model number.

According to its manual here: http://www.antec.com/pdf/manuals/VP450F_manual_EN.pdf

It has a pci-e 6 pin connector, and 30A on the +12v rails. Should be good to go.
