The GTS 450 needs a 400W PSU with 22A on the 12V rails so you should be fine with your current PSU but it is a good choice to switch your generic PSU with a Corsair PSU

your power supply will blow up as soon as any load is applied to the video card. A PSU that is that cheap end nasty will not produce its rated power. an antec 380w unit will produce more continuous power.

IMO, first get the PSU and then whichever video card you want.
