My current PSU has no 6 pin connector, so i cant use the Zotac geforce 450 (I will be getting it from a friend for free most likely). Could i get the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026 and it will have one? or does the geforce 450 need something other than that? Would i need the modular : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139049 ? or even a higher voltage : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 (500w)

Thanks in advance (i am asking which psu do i need to use the zotac geforce 450 and cheap as possible)

the minimum requirement is 400 watts

it doesn't hurt to go with a 500 watts psu. Modular would just make your cable management easier as you only use the cables you need which translates to less clutter. If you can go with something better than the CX series that would be a better decision.

I don't know your budget, but the XFX which is made by seasonic is great... the ts is a tier 2
