Will my psu support the phenom II x4 965 BE with higher wattage. i have not finalised on mobo yet but it will be a budget one with basic overclocking abilities.

Best solution

Yes your psu support it... But (actually 450W + Bad efficiency with labeled 500W, sorry about this)

it's not enough for overclocking 965BE + GTS450 (low power). You need minimum 500W pure/ true or above if you want upgrade GPU, sellect PSU from good performance like Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, Golden super flower etc depend your budget. Just my suggestion.

You can get the Antec HCG 520W for around 50 after MIR or 750 for around $70 I believe at newegg right now.
