Bought this to hold some parts I had laying around for a super basic desktop.

Time for a new 450w power supply.

I don't know much about building stuff, do most 450w power supplies work for this? What criteria do I have to "match" when shopping for a new one?

The Corsair CX450 is good for really low end PCs.

If you have decently expensive parts in it I'd get a Seasonic

just because the case came with a 450w PSU doesn't mean that you have to replace it with a 450w PSU. Any ATX PSU should work really. I would highly not recommend getting a Corsair CX actually, you'd be better off referring to the PSU tier list floating around the net.

My PSU is fully modular and is rated as a Tier 2 class

The Corsair CXM units got a bad reputation because of the first models, but the updated models have gotten good reviews. But they're budget PSUs and shouldn't be expected to be competetive with the expensive PSUs.

I don't get why nobody just buys a high watt PSU...
Isn't the 80 plus rating reflective on the idea that as long as the system is using 20% of the peak that it can still be efficient?

Some systems even have it where if it's around that percent then it doesn't need to use the fan. And when you upgrade, you don't have to change the psu again...

Also, if you buy an OP psu, it's probably suffering almost no wear and tear.

Lol, my PSU is 850 and its probably not even using half of that. I expect my PSU to last a decade.
