Question Is my PSU good enough?

Hi, I'm planning to upgrade my gt440 to a hd7850 or hd7870 (whichever that my PSU can support) I'm using an Asus m5a78l-m lx motherboard with 2x4gb ddr3 ram and a Seagate Barracuda 500gb with AMD fx-4100 the gt440 is just a middle-class gpu and it just uses 65w max -GeForce GT 440 | Specifications | GeForce the hd7850 needs 130w - GeForce GT 440 1.5GB vs Radeon HD 7850 Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare (don't look at the gt440 as im using a 1gb ver. instead of 1.5gb) I used the PSUcalculator from but ends up i only needs 339w with the hd7850, so does this means my PSU can support the hd7850 flawlessly? changing to the hd7870 and it shows i need 362w recommended I have a TreeTop TA80 450w which is actually by AcBel, a taiwanese company. It would be hard to find on google so i've attached an image. Hope it helps.
