My system configuration :
My query is can my power supply unit handle ATI 5870?I wouldn't overclock!
If yes will it make my system unstable?

It should handle an HD5870. An OCed HD5850 is a better deal however.

I think it should work fine,however like AMD recommends,its better to buy a 550W+ PSU

I would think he already had the 450VX. No reason to replace it when it will do the job. That PSU is better than most 550w units by other brands in any case.
