I just recently purchased a Radeon R9 270 from Newegg as I saw it didn't require a lot of power. My current PC specs are...

The PSU is actually a 430W instead of the one listed. So, will the PSU be able to handle the new card. I would really prefer if I didn't have to blow through more money so if it is in anyway possible than I would really like to know. Thanks!

The only reason i am recommending THIS specific one, is that it is currently 30% off and a freiking killer deal. another thing with buying a bigger psu, is that it will run quieter as it will be less stressed by your system

I really would rather not buy a new PSU if don't have to. Do you think that a thermal take 430W will do?

What is the brand of this power supply? If it comes with the prebuilt pc then most probably it is a low quality psu. For R9 270 u need atleast a quality 430-450watt psu like Corsair cx430.

There is a lot of minimum talk on this site, but the most common gpu problem i have seen so far is inadequate power supplies. Yes the 430 watt will likely be fine, but will be significantly louder while gaming than the one i listed

Just do not overclock either your cpu of gpu. sorry i read a little fast and didnt realise you already had the 430 watt. You may try it, and it SHOULD work on paper. If you run into any problems with stuttering or crashes while gaming, then be suspicious of your power supply
