Is 450watts enough for this build?

i bought an Antec Basiq VP450W 450Watts and i wonder if my gpu will get enough juice to run flawless.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.0GHz - needs 65Watts

Motherboard: Asus P5K SE/EPU

RAM: Kingston ddr2 667Mhz 4gb

GPU: XFX HD Radeon 5670 1GB ddr3 - needs watts but i dunno how much

  1. also, the antec basiq vp450 has 5v @ 22a and 12v @ 18a.. but i cant figure it out what does the hd 5670 needs to run without any problems
  2. 400 Watt or greater power supply recommended (500 Watt for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)

    A 5670 only needs about 5 amps. I doubt if your system will pull more than 200 watts out of your power supply at full load.

    You have plenty of power available.
