Your i5 at 4.5GHz is fine for that 980Ti. It's still a viable processor. Don't worry about it.

But the TR2 PSUs are typically trash, you might want to get a quality 550W unit, like the EVGA G2 550W so you can calmly sleep at night. I wouldn't be able with a TR2 in my PC.

I second the motion for a better PSU. Of all the parts in your PC, the PSU is probably the most important and is the LAST thing you want to cheap out on, moreso than the Motherboard.
