Is my 450W PSU powerful enough for this build?

Hi all, I just wanted to check and see if someone could tell me if my 450W PSU is powerful enough for my PC Build or if I should upgrade it?

I have had my build completed for about 6 months, except I just bought the graphics card. I want to make sure my PSU is powerful enough before I install my graphics card, and if it's not, what PSU I should get?

It says on here that everything is compatible, but when I used a Power usage calculator it said I needed a larger power supply (though I may have input some stuff wrong I guess?)

If I could get a second or third opinion and someone could tell me if my PSU is good for what I have included in my build (and gives me a bit of wiggle room) or if I need a new one that would be great!

Thanks!

Its more than plenty. You could run two GTX 1070's off of it.

Keep in mind this is from the wall so the system itself isn't using this much power and its with a more power hungrier CPU.

It is wrong, PSU calcuators are always wrong. For best results look up real world power usage.
