  1. You don't need a 450 watt psu for that system, and Logisys is crap.
  2. I would avoid it totally it says 575W but when you look at the pictures you see :

    it shows 25A on the 12V rail and the 430W Corsair CX430 (A good make) has 28. So basically its not as powerful as a good brand 430W and no name PSUs are well known for killing themselves and the rest of your components.
  3. Are you sure I only need 400w, because I was reading i need at least 450w for this graphics card or I could fry my system :(

    Don't know where you read that , but it's BS.
    Nvidia reccomends 400 watts for a system with a 9800 GT, that number is over-rated to try and make sure that people who use Logisys power supplies have enough amperage on the 12v rail.
    Stressing a system like yours would put a 55-60% load on a 400w psu, nothings going to fry due to a lack of power.
