I have a 3570k and a mini itx motherboard with a small Samsung SSD. I am wondering if i purchase a GTX 275 will it turn on so i can underclock the GPU to use less power? I just want to card so i can play League of Legends and Starcraft at max settings

What is your PSU specs? You would be really pushing it since it uses almost 400W for a full system (± 10). I would get a new PSU to be safe.

GTX 275 is an old card anyway. Something like an HD 7770 or 7790 would be fine on your CX430 and be more powerful than a GTX 275. An HD 7850 or GTX 660 would also work and be much more powerful than a GTX 275. The 275 will limit you to DX 10 as well.

I'm on a budget of around 60-80 dollars. I havent slept last night because I am searching EVERYWHERE for a used 460 but i cant find one. This guy wants 80 for a 7770 but someone offered me a 4870 for only $35... which should i go for???

HD 7770 is better than a 4870.

CPU matters very little when it comes to a power supply. The i5 uses way less power than the overclocked FX anyway.
