Well, we need more information on your current PSU. What's the combined 12V rail power? And how about the amps? How many amps you rockin'?
Likely not going to handle it at any rate. I think the minimum is a 650 watt at any rate. Even still, if you're throwing that much power at a computer I would *guess* you like to overclock. Go for a solid 900 watt PSU and you should be golden. 600 is a little low for that. It'll make a great folding PSU though with that 450!
