The CX series uses cheap capacitors and stressing the power supply could lead to instability or even failure. If you had a 7850 or even a 6850 I would say go for it but the older 5850 uses more power. thasan1 a b ) Power supply May 21, 2013 9:56:11 PM you may not be able to run them and id recommend not to. because your Gfx card is the main problem. it will chew most of the power.plus CX430 doesn't have enough amperage to run the card.
