450 watt is the minimum for your gpu so you would be just fine. The tx series is not modular.

meh. with a full tower top mounted psu case I decided modular aint a biggie, plus I hear modular technology can lead to degragaded cords if youre using them a lot, and a higher chance of burnouts, hence why corsair does not do modular.

so you really think 650w will be enuf? i thought the cpu took enuf power? its only 10 bucks for 100 more watts but im also tryn to be energy effecient and eco friendly

Well 650watss is plenty. As for energy efficient you would have a 1,000,000watt psu and it would only draw the amount of power that your machine requires so it would not use any more power than a 650watt would.

for $10 more I would go for the 750tx
or
since modular is not an issue now I would also consider this psu as well.
