450w is a general recommendation by the manufacturer, because there are bound to be people who use this or any gfx card with a piece of crap psu.

the 400w is from a reputable brand (antec), you wouldn't have a problem if you were to have it setup like that.

5450 is garbage. Drop it for a DX10 Card.
