I've started building a new PC after using a laptop for the past 6 years. My primary reason for a new build is for World of Warcraft, but also to open up other current games / future games. Primarily for WoW, I want to be able to run on pretty high settings, but also have the ability to FRAPS or livestream, etc, without killing my FPS. Is that a pipe dream?

What I have / or ordered so far:

Rosewill CRUISER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer
ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor Model ADX630WFGIBOX - Retail

What I currently have planned/looking at:

XFX HD-575X-ZNDC Radeon HD 5750 XXX Edition 1GB 128-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

What I'm struggling with is the power supply. I don't want to spend too much, or buy more than I need (like a 600w). No plans for Crossfire or anything. Would a 450w be more than sufficient, and any recommendations ($70 or under)? Any other suggestions or feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you, I was looking at another OCZ 500w, but that one is cheaper after rebate. Going to order it soon. I think I'm going to end up going with the XFX HD 4850 just for cost reasons and it seems to be more than sufficient.
