I have just got a new Graphics Card few days ago, Sapphire 5830 1 GB, and my PC is 8 GB RAM, MB Gigabyte P43, OC E8400 running at 3.77 Ghz and 2 WD Blue HD.

My power supply i Gigabyte 450 Watt, Do I need a new PSU?

I doubt your system will even exceed 350W with that E8400 even after the overclock.

To give you a point of reference, my system runs around 450W and that is overclocked i7 + overclocked 5970.
