Is this a good enough PSU for my build?

Here's my PSU: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-power-supply-vp450
I will use a i3-3220 and radeon hd 7850 1gb(maybe 2gb if the price is good).
Complete build if needed: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wdZB

I will probably not OC or anything like that, but will do a good bit of gaming.

I would like to know if this PSU is good enough to power this build and of good quality, and if not, some recommendations. (My budget is also $600.)

  1. The PSU recieved a gold award from hardwaresecrets.com so it is of good quality.
    As if it will be enough for your system will depend if you intend to OC it or not.

    The 7850 calls for a 500w psu or more. While there is some room in that you want to step it up to atleast 500w. I recommend the Rosewill xtreme 750w psu, gives extra room for upgrading and PLENTY of power room on your current build. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182067
  3. The Rosewill looks nice, but is a good bit out of budget.
    How about this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371030
    It meets the 500w and is a better price.

    Also, to be honest, I don't see myself OCing anytime soon.
