Default 400w PSU enough for a 2900pro?

SORRY, the title should read "450w" not 400

Well i want to buy this case:

NCIX.com - Buy NCIX XION2-BK Black ATX Mid Tower Case 4X5.25 2X3.5 5X3.5INT 2X120MM Fans 450W W/ LED Fans & Window - NCIX-XION2-BK/GN In Canada.

Mostly because it's hella cheap, and it looks awesome. It also happens to have a 450W PSU that comes with it! This means i can save 100ish dollars. But...

Will this PSU be able to handle:
q6600
2900pro
1 HDD
1 DVD Drive
1 TV Tuner card
2 GB ram

With a small bit of overclocking (3.0-3.2ghs) on the q6600?

Are there any not-so-crappy PSUs then that you would recommend for this build? Keeping in mind that i'm on a tight budget...=)

what is your budget?

because you said overclocking a lot.... so i think a Corsair 520 is what you need... but its near $100 USD... maybe an Xclio GreatPower 550w?
