Is this a HP machine?
You could run all that on a decent 300W PSU - as long as you didnt start any 3D gaming session.
If you started gaming the GPU power requirement could exceed what your PSU can provide.

Have you check the HP forums to see if any others with similar systems can are upgrading with 250GTS? That would save having to guess.

450W includes EVERYTHING.
And if you get a high quality PSU I think you can by with 400W PSU.
