Default Ritmo PSU need help

I opened my case up to have a look at my PSU, it has a graph on it that indicates a lot of different psu's of it's brand (ritmo) ...

My problem is, I am not sure what cooling and power supply I need for my upgrade path...

I currently have a
gigabyte K8VT800 mobo
AMD sempron 2800+ @ 1.608Ghz
1GB generic RAM ( DDR400 ) -2 sticks 512
Albatron 6600GT 128MB AGP
80 GB WD HDD ( 7200rpm )
Ritmo 450watt PSU
Ritmo Midi Case black ATX

and will be upgrading video and cpu :
AMD athlon 3700+ 1MB L2
XFX 7800 GS Extreme @ 440core 1300mem

So, on my PSU, i see a green sticker next to the 450watt sticker, then under the graph titled "green" , it says remote for the amps... What does that mean??? the other colors like red and orange say like 25A and 29A etc etc... So i guess that coz mine says "remote" that is bad right? I just need conformation that its bad, or not - so I dont waste money.

Also, with the upgrade path that I have shown above, will I need extra cooling? I already have stock cooling, and it's done fine - even here in Australian summertime which reaches temps of 45degrees celsius. ( 113 farenheit ) ..
Usually i would aim my fan ( human fan ) at my case on the hotter days, and put it on full blast.
Any help would be great, cheers
