You would need a stronger power supply, at least 500w to run a 7850

bump up the cpu to a 8350 and a graphics card to a 7870 and the psu to a 550/600w, secondly if avaliable, see if you can go a microcenter store it will save you some $$$

Well this corsair 430W PSU has a 32 amps output on a 12V rail. 12V rail is vital for most of the components of a rig. Since HD 7850 has 130W TDP and operate at 12V voltage it may draw 12-13 amps consider there is some power loss in consumption. (In computer PSU the power efficiency is nearly 80% in full load), the CPU has 95W TDP so it may draw 10 amps, so there is still 9-10 amps left for the rest such as mobo, HDD and some case fans which consumes only 6-7 amps (72-84 wattage) power. But if u go OC, u may need a 500W PSU to prevent overload.
