Hey. I would just like to know if my rig is getting enough power from my psu?

Specs are:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 1200 3.1GHz
Mobo: Asus Prime B450M-K
RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY DDR4 8GB (1x8GB)
GPU: Asus RX 480 4GB
Storage: Hikvision 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD 7200RPM
PSU: Corsair 450W with braided cables

The system is running fine but I haven't really played any demanding titles. I have run Unigine at the extreme preset though and all went well. Average fps is 77, max is 175 and minimum is 21. I'm not 100% sure how a gpu is effected by a lack of power and am just a bit paranoid that the minimum 21fps is a result of not getting enough power.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

It'll work well, or it'll work intermittently/not at all, there's no lower FPS failure mode with a poor PSU.

The question needs to be asked, precisely what PSU do you have? Braided cables doesn't really help us.
It's a Corsair VS 450W - model number is CP-9020049-NA I believe.

The VS series is kinda confusing. They used to have orange text on the PSU's sticker. They're grey now. Do you have the orange or grey version?
It's a black sticker with the "VS" being orange and the other text, Corsair and 450, being white.

Not the best PSU, and a low wattage, I wouldn't load it any further, any upgrades and you'll need a new one.
Yeah it's a new build so I'll probably only be upgrading after about a year or so. But the rig is fine as it is now?

Thanks for the input so far btw.
