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... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
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!
This power supply is more than you will ever need, and it has good reviews. A 430 watt power supply has the chance of being either low quality, or inadequate if you ever decide to overclock either your graphics card or your cpu
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
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
