Yes a 450VX should be enough but just go for the 550VX just to be safe.

The 450W (it's a quality unit) PSU is sufficient.
I take it you plan to OC that quadcore.
The Zalman cooler is likely not going to be a good performer.
Consider the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 (just my advice).

The VX450 is a GREAT power supply, and certainly enough to power your system. Look no further.
