Ok so i will never go for HEDT platform always mainstream like for example if I have to upgrade now i will go 9900k or ryzen 3800x. I have tested with a wattage meter and my current system on full load cpu and gpu use about 450w max. so typical gaming under that and that's with custom bios on my gpu and it's watercooled with nzxt g12 and corsair h75.
Did you take the rated efficiency of your PSU off the number you got from the wall?
If not then the number is not actually 450 its actually somewhere around 400 so anything more than a 650 watt is overkill

The Seasonic Focus Plus or the Seasonic Prime / Prime Ultra or the Corsair RMx are all good options
The AX1000 is way overkill
