Is 450 Watt power supply enough?

Hi there, I ordered my parts last week and my pc parts should be coming in the mail this week. I already got my monitor, keyboard and mouse and the topic of this forum the power supply.

My build says the estimated wattage is between 64 and 280 watts. I imagine 64 being under idle load and 280 while gaming heavily.

My build lists a 450 Watt semi-modular PSU and I'm curious if that will be enough to run my build safely.

should be plenty.

Easily plenty. For a idea of how much headroom and while I wouldn't recommend it but you could run two GTX 1070's off a a 450 watt PSU. You would be lucky to use 250 watts while gaming and maybe 300 watts while torture testing the whole build.

I'd doubt I'd do that haha. Just wanted to make sure. I don't plan on overclocking anyways.
