Is my new PC build alright?

Hi, I'm building a new PC mainly for gaming and videos/music. My budget is MAX $650, there is no way I can go above that. Anyway, here it is:

Total: $650


The only thing I am kind of worried is if a 450W power supply will be enough for this; would be great if someone could link me to another better one for the same price. Also, I was wondering if I really need a $50 case with 3 fans or if I can go for a simpler one with only a front fan for $40 like this one:

Thank you in advance.

More about build alright
  1. Do you have an OS? Because if you don't that will be an extra $100 at least.

    Already have one.
  3. The only other thing I could think of is maybe getting a new PSU. A modular one would be better for cable management and you should look into a higher voltage. Finally you could go for the cheaper case and get a better PSU, and possibly another cheap fan. Just some ideas not sure if they are totally necessary.
  4. you are gonna need a better PSU here a good cheap one i will be buying this when i upgrade my pc.

    How much more power would I need? Unfortunately I can't afford a modular PSU =(

    I was thinking of going with a smallest PSU possible that wouldn't cause any problems and if one day I upgrade my CPU/GPU then I'll also upgrade the PSU.

    The 550 ti has a minimum requirement of 400W so I don't know if I need that much more.

    This is my first build though so I'm not sure, you guys know more than me lol :D

    Also, what's the difference between a 2.2 and a 2.31 PSU?
