    You'd probably be okay with the 450w but I'd recommend at least a 500w with 30+ amps on the +12V rail. I wouldn't buy either one of those power supplies to tell the truth, go with a better unit like an Enermax or PC Power. Corsair also sells a really good 500/550w unit so I'd recommend that as well. The power supply is the most important component inside the computer so you want to buy a quality unit.
