Just wanted to get some feedback if this PSU is enough for my build. According to PCPP, it should be enough watt wise, but wanted to get some feedback.

Thanks!

Yep 450 watts is more than enough even if overclocking. That is a good psu but I wouldn't pay 60 bucks for it. For an additional 12 bucks you can get the EVGA G2 550 which is a much better psu.

If mail in rebates are not an issue you can consider this units...

Corsair RMx 550 is on sale for 60 bucks with mail in rebate

Also the seasonic G 550 is on sale with mail in rebate for 57 bucks (corsair unit is better)
