a corsair vx450 should be fine for that setup. they are very good quality and reliable PSUs, that are capable of supplying more than the rated wattage.
even so, 450w would be fine so a corsair 450 should be great.

What is actually recommended is a PSU with 24A available for the entire system.
It is only possible for your GPU to draw a maximum of 12.5A ((75w from the PCIe slot + 75w from the 6 pin connector)/12v = 12.5a).

Your PSU is plenty powerful enough.
No need to worry at all...

he is correct.

as i said before, a regular 450w PSU would be fine for that system. but you have a very good quality 450w PSU. nothing to worry about.

Yes, it will work just fine.
Your PSU is a high quality unit and will have no issues supporting your system regardless of any overclocking.

[:bohleyk:7]

YES!
It can handle it just fine!

396w on the 12v rail = 33A
The overall combine wattage of the PSU is 450w.
It is also a high quality PSU that can handle a 500w+ load with no issues.
