Oh yes, because you can totally rape your wallet for a $70 PSU with a $300 build.

Your power draw wouldn't be higher than 250w on a build that cheap.
There's no reason to run for the Corsairs, Antecs, and Seasonics.

I've seen the HEC 585w run a 9800 GTX+ and i5 750 build.

I've also seen the HEC 485w run a 4850

OP Running his lowly 4670 should not run into any problems.
it has nothign to do with the power draw what so ever. It has to do with the quality of the psu, and the quality of that psu is not good. You should NEVER run a computer on a crap psu, that is a sure fire way to get it to blow and take things with it. If there is any part in a computer that should not be cheaped out on it is the PSU. ALSO the 450vx was an example, not the exact psu he should get. Looking over the prices on newegg, the best psu that i can see for the cheapest amount is the antec earth watts 380w....its $39, or the antec earth watts 430. I mean the hec would get you by, but personally i think its pointless to buy that psu, when for like $10 you can ge the antec.
