That will give you a faster, more upgradeable computer that supports the latest in AMD processors and a high end graphics card. Overall a better spending of your money to get something upgradeable in the future, IMO

Why get a 550 watts when a 450 watts is enough

Because its like 10 bucks more and then he never has to upgrade his PSU unless he goes way into overclocking. But yeah, a 450 would be more than enough to power a 7750.
