I pull 400 at the wall with a 4.6ghz 3770k and a 1202mhz 780 playing BF4. somethings off about your setup.This is a picture from my watt meter, running BF4 at 120fps on my 4.3Ghz i5 2500k and GTX 970 G1.
Shave off around 100W when the HDDs will power down.
Don't think that performance comes at no cost.
Also don't forget that a 450W PSU does not give 450W of 12V power. There are 5V needs to be satisfied. Let alone the wear of time.
edit sorry I forgot to turn off the TV which is also connected on that power circuit so shave off another 100W.
Still at almost 400W you are pushing it thin.
