No. 450 watts is not enough - upgrade the PSU.

Per the above links, the required power supply is 500-550 watts.

If the GPU does not perform or has issues and your PSU does not meet the recommended/required wattage specs then the GPU manufacturer is under no obligation to support the card.

My suggestion is a quality 750 Watt PSU.

You need a decent 550w , at minimum a Corsair CX550 or CX550M.
