So right now i have a CX430M psu and i think i will be getting an EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB gpu soon so, but i need to know if my current 430 watt psu will have enough watts to support it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

SPECS
---------
NZXT Source 210 case
AMD A10 6800k apu
MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 motherboard
8gb G. Skills Ripjaws X 1866mhz RAM
1TB 7200rpm HDD
LG 24x optical drive
Corsair CX430M psu

Yes it will.

Just curious though, why purchase an APU AND dedicated graphics? I'm assuming you purchased the APU and realized it didn't have enough performance, so you want to upgrade.

You got it exactly! I was assuming the 6800k would be good enough for mid-high setting gaming, but even on Saints Row: The Third i can only have it on Medium setting and have it run smoothly and it still lags sometimes :/  so ive finally decided that i need a gpu, but i only have enough money for a gpu and cant upgrade my cpu. BUT, i did buy the apu at MicroCenter, maybe i can return it and get a better cpu? Got any recommendations anybody? I have an MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 motherboard though, so only AMD cpu's will work, unless i retrun that too lol

Well unfortunately the A10-6800k is the best you can currently get with the FM2 socket. Its not a bad chip by any means and you should be fine when running that with a GTX 650 Ti.

If you were to completely revamp your build and go with an AM3+ socket motherboard, I would suggest the FX6300 for your processor. Its an excellent chip that overclocks very well and can be found for around 110USD from Newegg/Amazon.

Thanks! but wouldnt my current AMD board support the FX6300 since its also an AMD cpu? Just a curious question, i dont think i would be changing cpu's then since a lot of people say the 6800k and a 650 Ti are okay together.

Unfortunately your current motherboard only supports chips with the FM2 socket, where the FX6300 uses the AM3+ socket. The board simply will not allow the chip to be entered into the socket due to the different pin configurations of the chips.

But yeah, the 6800k and GTX650 Ti will be fine together, no worries there!

Ah, i see, well that sucks :/  whatever i dont think i will be changing my cpu soon anyways. Thanks, thats awesome to know since i think ill have to end up getting the 650 Ti, im just excited to get any good gpu and finally get some good framerates on high or even ultra settings :lol:

Thanks! on another post someone said that they are also using a CX430M psu and have a "heavily overclocked 965 BE" which uses alot more power than my AMD a10 6800k so i think i should be good with my current psu and this card and another i think i might get, an MSI Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB.
