That CPU is awful and is very old and its pointless to buy a APU with a dedicated GPU. The motherboard is misssing a price. That PSU isn't good and is missing a price. As for your question 450W is plenty.

i think its enough, but...i;d bump up the wattage to future proof the rig. you might want to upgrade in the future or add on more stuff, the seasonic focus plus 650w is the best choice, plus it'll last at least 10 years, 2nd choice would be the corsair rmx 650w

Yep a "good" 450 watts psu would be more than enough for this build. If you haven't bought any of the components, I would recommend you to ask for recommendations based on your budget to get a better part's list. :)

I mean, the PSU is enough, but do NOT buy an APU......

Wattage is enough for normal use, just don't push it too hard and maybe rethink the whole build...
