Phenom II4x 965be and hd 7850 on a 450w psu

Simple question will a small upgrade with a phenom II4x 965be and hd 7850 run on a Corsair WX450w PSU???

Full spec:
Windows 7 home premium 64bit

Motherboard: Asrock 990FX Extreme3

Cpu: phenom II4x 965be

Gpu: SAPPHIRE RADEON HD7850 2GB

Ram 6gb kingston ddr3 1333 mhz

HD`s: seagate barracuda 7200.14 - 2TB + samsung spinpoint 1tb

Case: Collermaster HAF 922 (no led's)

Bluray drive.

I used this site: http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine

and they recommended a 434 w psu (with a minimum of 374w) but would like to hear tour opinion as well.

The PC will be used for games like Witcher 2, Sleeping dogs and Far Cry 3.

  1. it should be fine but u will have no room for upgrading any further, and maybe overclocking might be affected as well
  2. it is a couple of years old now, bought with the hardware i'm replacing

    Yes - that PSU (VX not WX, right?) will run your system. The online
    calculators are a guide, but do build in a lot of headroom.
    realhardtech suggests a quality 400w psu for a sys with one 7850.
