As long as your case isn't low profile it will fit in anything.

Well what brand is the psu? it really depends on the quality of the parts that the manufacturer uses as to whether it can really give you the full 450w all the time.

Doesn't really matter. A 650ti takes less than 100w max and the i3 will take either 65 or 55w depending on if it's IB or SB. Either way, max load is less than 50% capacity at all times.

If he needed a new PSU at all I would have said something.
