What is the make/model of the PSU? How many PCIe power connectors does the PSU have? Depending on the PSU a 450W PSU should be able to handle at least an HD6850 GPU. There are significant quality differences in PSUs. If your PSU is a low quality PSU, then I would recommend considering replacing it with a good quality PSU.
