CPU:AMD Athlon II X2 215 2.7 Ghz ( im going to buy a 3 or 4- core CPU after i buy a psu )
RAM:1 stick of 2 GB DDR2 ( im going to buy another 2 gb )
MOBO: ASUS M2N68-AM SE2
Fans:2 Case Fans + One CPU Fan
One Optical Drive
HDD: one 500 GB Caviar Blue
GPU:GTX 460 Cyclone 768 MB GDDR5

And i need your help when buying a PSU because i live in Serbia and i dont have new Corsair,Antec,XFX,Rosewill psu so im going to buy a used PSU if u help i will reward u with the best answer so tell me what psu should i get

1. Corsair VX450 450 W 33 A one Rail

2.Seasonic 430 W 17 A first rail and 17 A second rail

so what will be the best for my system because seasonic has 2 PCIe connectors and the Corsair has 1 PCIe connector and for the GTX 460 i need 2 PCIe cables ofcourse i have 2 4 pin to 6 pin adapter but i only have one adapter

can you find a used 500-650w unit. the 430w one rail unit may cut it but under gaming load it may shut down on you.

You would want at least a good 550w-600w PSU.

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 460 768MB GDDR5 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most critical factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.

The Seasonic S12II-430 Bronze (SS-430GB) power supply unit, with its maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps and with one 6-pin and one (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 460 768MB GDDR5 graphics card.

The Corsair Enthusiast Series VX450 (SS-430GB) power supply unit, with its maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 33 Amps and with one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector, is electrically sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 460 768MB GDDR5 graphics card but it is deficient by one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.
