You can't have too much power. The system only draws the amount you need. 450w of a branded name may be all you ever need, though some high end video cards require more juice and will specify that in the specifications.

Without a GPU you can drop it even more but future upgrades may be compromised because of lack of power.I'd stay with what you choose or go for a xfx 550w for 9$ more.

You really don't want a PSU cheaper than that, they'll be rubbish. You can easily add most any GPU to that system no problem.
