First time I am planning to build a gaming pc and i have selected following.

Processor: INTEL CORE i5 3570K 3.40Ghz (6MB CACHE)
Board: INTEL DZ77SL-50K (LGA1155-SND+HDMI+GIGA LAN)
Gpu: INNO3D GTX660
Ram: KINGSTON DDR3 4GB-1333
Harddisk: SEAGATE 500GB 3.5" HDD 16MB Cache (ST-3500418AS)
Cpu Cooler: CORSAIR (COOLING SOLUTION) AIR SERIES A50 CPU COOLER
Case: COOLER MASTER CHASSIS CM ELITE 311

Lcd monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Now trying to figure out the last part of my build: the power supply. Is 450w power supply can handle above mentioned parts? If not suggest me any good power supply and cheap also as i am in budget.

Thanks.

I would say no. Although the gtx 660 isn't a huge power consumer, a 450w would just be cutting it. (nvidia recommends at least a 450w)

Your computer is fairly good, your processor and video card are decently future proof.

This being said, if you ever felt like upgrading your GPU down the road, (like the maxwell, or keplar refresh 700 series) you would be stuck buying a better psu anyway.

I would suggest a good quality/good brand psu, as a faulty psu could fry your whole system and leave you with nothing.

heres a good quality 500w psu for only 39.99 after rebate: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This would work for you now, and a future upgrade most likely. If you ever wanted to go SLI with you gpu (rather than upgrading to another single card) perhaps a 600w psu would be beneficial: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 59.99 after rebate
