Is 450W PSU enough for AMD FX-8350 and GTX 960 oc 4GB?

http://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator says that i need ~380W PSU, and recommended is 439W. I have 450W should it be enough?
I have 3 normal Sata hard drives (7,2k), 4TB of storage. I don't have optical drives but I have probably 4 or 6 case fans...

  1. That's enough to run that setup, in theory (mind).

    Overclocking and actually just running it will depend a lot on which brand and model power supply you own.

    I wouldn't. While day to day it should run fine. If you try to push it you will be close to or over the max. In some cases thats not a big deal, in others it will flat out crash.

    Corsair makes mostly good models but some are poor. What is the EXACT model of it?

    The CX and VS series have issues when pushed. I would recommend against using this PSU for that setup.

    Do you own these parts already or are you buying them?

    Thats a 4+1 power phase motherboard. You do not want to run an FX-8350 on that board at all, its not going to run well. Combining that board with a weak PSU is a recipe for disaster.

    Honestly, give the CPu back to your friend, buying a new AM3+ motherboard is a waste of money these days. Save a bit and do a full upgrade (including a better PSU).

  10. Could save the money and build a G4560 + B250M + DDR4 8GB RAM system.

  12. If you build it, it will work on the VS450. As implied earlier, It's not a high quality PSU, It's a risk.

    But you will waste money getting it to work properly. Not worth it. Sell it on ebay or something
