Try Surge's site if you think you can't build, I'm sure he won't scam you

You shouldn't need additional cooling for your graphics card.

Your friend isn't very smart when it comes to computers.

450vx has high 12v rails so it will be plenty for your system. Its not about how many volts you have its all in the rails .

You will need an atx case since you are getting an atx motherboard.

The 450vx will provide more than enough power for your system. Watts are not important, the amps on the 12v rails are.
