Yes the 2 piece tailcase has much lower vibes than the Align stile tailcase. I use that and the one piece mainshaft bearing block in my 450.

The Gsun 450C has three mainshaft bearings too and a bunch of other interesting differences like a motor that mounts from the top and open air servo mounts. There's a build review on it on helifreak.

I would replace the head though because it uses a 3mm feathering shaft and no thrust bearings. (could use the $9 HK FBL head or the $15 RJX clone to keep it cheap)
