  1. Well it may have the slots necessary but i wouldnt advise u that PSU for 2 reasons:
    1º: The CX series of corsair isnt really that good, look for the TX series or for a seasonic/XFX PSU
    2º: 430w is not enought to run that GPU and a CPU with confort and u want to leave a little room trust me
    I would go with an XFX 500w at least, a 550w would be better
    And the slots that PSU's have nowadays always support GPU's they have PCI expansion 8pin conectors, all of them have, like from 10 years until now

    So you can confirm that this PSU DOES have the necessary slots?

    yes, it does have the necessary slots, all PSU's have a motherboard 24pin conector, some Sata power connectors and some PCI expansion connectors, what i was trying to tell u is if u got a moderate CPU 430 W will not cut it, u will not have enought power, and even if u do corsair's CX series is bad

    Thank you for your assistance and advice, but I think I'm going to take my chances with that PSU. I would be satisfied just having something that works.
  5. Well mate, thats ok, do take your chances only trying to help, i might be wrong, but 430w just doesnt seem right for me and i would be irresponsible if i advised u on something like that
  6. A cx430 will EASILY power your stuff. My cx430 powers a gtx760
  7. Like i said i might be wrong, i like having a little confort
  8. It would be great if people stopped spreading misinformation and saying everyone needs 7kW for a graphics card.

    Takes so little effort to just learn to add :)
  9. I didnt say 7kw :P although i do understand where u are coming from, i just told him to get 70w more :P thats not a crime, what happens if he wants to Overclock?
  10. The 7770 takes less than 85W so even with a 125W CPU he's safe. Overclocking won't double the power - stuff will melt well before that.
  11. U are right :)
