Gigabyte 970 xtreme edition with 450w psu

Hello, my present cpu spec, 1. Intel core i5 4460 2. Asus H81m-c motherboard 3. Adata 4x2GB DDR3 4. WD 1TB 5. Asus strix 960 2GB 6. psu- Thermaltake TR2 450w bronze.

Well, i want to buy the gigabyte 970 xtreme edition. I saw many people use 450w psu for various 970. I have no plan to upgrade my pc in near future as I am a budget person. I WILL NOT OVERLCLOCK. Even i didn't overlcok my gtx 960 for a single second. I will get a psu in near future. So can anyone tell me should I purchase this edition?

450 watts is enough but from a quality psu, I definitely upgrade that psu.

Please just put more money into a better power supply, you cant afford to replace the whole computer can you?

Having gone with a lesser known and less respected manufacturer before i would recommend against it and saving a little more money for a card from a respected brand like MSI, Gigabyte, EVGA, etc. If you are already going to spend a sizable amount of money on a GPU then at least get one from a brand that is widely respected.

Agreed. I'd have a club 3d card over basically any other one.
