Need a new PSU

I've had my PC for almost 4 years now and during a storm my PSU was damaged which was a C.i.T 750W non-modular PSU.
My motherboard is a Gibabyte GA-H67MA-USB3-B3 and I have a Nvidia GTX460 ] but the spare PSU a friend had was a fully modular 750W PSU which would power the motherboard but not my GPU but would power a GTX260.
I've been recommended a Corsair CX430 by a Frenchman in a local PC store but with a thick accent it was hard to understand anything he said. I have very little experience with PCs and I am really hoping to find a good PSU that I will still be able to use with my current rig as well as future upgrades to the GPU which I plan on doing soon. Any ideas as to which PSU I should look into?

  1. A Corsair CX430 doesn't have the required PCIE power connections for the card.

    It's a budget power supply with poor capacitors.
