I'd suggest a 600 watt model. A 450 is really for a small HTPC type of djangoringo a b à CPUs February 1, 2013 2:35:35 PM It's good, 450W is plenty for the system, the xfx psu is made by seasonic, it's a quality psu. A 660 gtx maximum tdp is 140W, the total system will not draw more than ~250W at load.
