I am looking to upgrade to the 9800gtx+ from my 9600gt.

I currently have a Corsair 450 VX.

Will this be enough power for the 9800GTX+. I know the specs say only 450w is needed, but I wanted to make sure.

Also, any brand recommendations? Was looking at BFG and EVGA.

Finally, I only have one six-pin connector, I know it comes with a molex connector, is this really a big deal for my psu?

Beat me to it.

You have plenty of power. The 450VX has a 33 amp 12 volt output. A 9600 need about 5 amps. The GTX+ needs about 10 amps.

Using a molex to 6 pin adapter will not be a problem.
