Default Question about psu....

Hey wassup everyone, Ok my question is should I keep this PSU running my upgraded parts, 2gig G.Skill ram, 7900gt ko-zalman vf9700, and zalman7700 cpu fan?

The psu I am using is from the xion case i got 6 months ago and so far is still running good without me installing the new card and ram yet.

I want to upgrade my case to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16811156180 with this new psu but ive heard its not that good to use stock psu.

Or upgrade the case to this nice one with no psu..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16811233002, but it will be a big blow to my budget because I will have to spend another 75$ on a 450w antec psu.

So what should I do guys? I mean the xion 450w has been good so far. Would it even be worth to buy a name brand psu?

-Thanks in advance.

The links don't work....yes it is worth it to get a name brand psu. It's good to invest in one. Heres a reliable brand:

Don't skimp on the PSU. You'll regret it.

I've never heard of FSP group. Antec, Mushkin, and OCZ are good PSU's. Antec would probably be the best, IMO.
