Hi,

I'm upgrading a build for a friend and he needs a new graphics card. Was going to go with the Sapphire Nitro R7 370 4GB. Full specs (minus the case as I don't know what it is) below.

Will the VS 450 be enough for this system? It ran fine previously with the 2GB Gigabyte Windforce OC version, but just want to check there's enough wattage headroom there.

Thanks.
