Depends on the 450W PSU, what make and model is it? How many amps does it have on its 12V rails? Not all PSUs were created equal, a corsair 450VX can do it, the 450W raidmax with two fans, probably not a good idea.

If this is a generic psu that came with a case you will probably get 6months to 2 years out of it.

You really want something putting out at least 35-40 amps on the 12v rail.

Most generics state 30 and barely manage that. You will run your system but you will kill your psu eventually possibly taking out other components in the process.
