I'm Planning to buy RX 480, My current Rig is i5 4460, Zotac 750ti, Antec BP 450. Will BP 450 will be enough for RX 480 or should I upgrade :confused_NF:

It has a MAX tdp of 150 watts, realistically it should consume the same amount of power as a 960. We will only know this when it launches, so dont upgrade now

everyone over hypes about PSU over here.
I run 200 watt GTX 285 on a crappy 500 watt psu. it runs max performance smooth.

so wait and see which version you will buy. reference rx 480 is actually a 75w card. pulling 90w at peak.
the 3rd party might go up to 165watts.

Go with Seasonic S12II 520w -5500. This PSU is the best in terms of price to performance ratio with 5 years warranty.

NO need of upgrade. Unless you go for anything more than 150W TDP.

If it is working fine now, then it will work with RX 480 without a problem.

Components have become way more efficient now. Even with an i7 5820k with 980 the whole system won't pull more than 400W.

Well as I understand 290x and 390x are rather comparable with minor differences in performance. You say a 480 is around a 390 ( I assume you actually mean a 390x), then I really don't see any point of upgrading.

After the 480, we should expect a 490 and a 490x right?
