I have a Corsair CX430 power supply, I'm wondering if it can handle this video card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you check the specifications tab and read the features section it states that the recommended System power supply requirement is 450W

Just wondering if my power supply can handle this gpu
Thanks !

Oh.. P.S. if you can add detailed info, please do so c: THANKS !

That was quick haha!
A couple more questions:
1.) Why does newegg say that the system power supply requirement is 450w?
2.) The total estimated wattage for my ENTIRE system in PcPartPicker is 287w, would this psu cut it and run smoothly ? (i'm guessing it would)

Oh oh, I only saw the GTX 650 Ti part of the title, weird how they titled that. You're still probably ok with 430W...but might be a good idea to invest in more power at that point.

Max power draw for the BOOST is 134W. Also consider, if you ever want to SLI a couple of these, you'll need more juice. I just snagged a second and had to upgrade my PSU.

I'm referring to the 650 ti boost, at newegg it says this in the overview: Powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost GPU

Sorry for this very long convo but I just want to make sure before I buy this GPU haha,
So to finalize everything and give you the ''best answer'':

1.) I'm pairing it with the FX-6300, will this cx430 be sufficient?
2.) and by ''it will do ok'' will it not short circuit or fry any part of my build?.. I won't probably do anything with the GPU (sli or whatever)
3.) If you know any problem that might occur when I use this PSU with the GPU, can you please state them


Best solution

No worries, at all.

1) If your PSU calculator is right, 287 + 134 = 421W (at max load). Unless you have the money to spend, you should be fine with a 430W.

2) If I were you, and I didn't want to spend more money, I would feel comfortable doing this setup, that's all I can say.

3) I don't know of any problems, besides future upgrading that would push that PSU too far.

Hope that helps.

You can snag a 600W right now for $30:
