you aren't playing bf4 in an enjoyable fashion at 1080p on ultra with a 270.

As to is it safe... how many 12V amps can that PSU supply.

If you haven't bought the CX yet, don't.

If you have, it should be OK, but will probably fail early.

@cabudinen, that's way overkill. A good 500W+ is plenty.

I always recommend things that could be future proof, lol. One day he will want to upgrade.

A good 500W PSU should handle any single GPU around. And in most places it would be a 550W XFX that I'd recommend. Spend the extra cash on the GPU.

Also, his/her board may or may not support x8/x8 CF/SLI.

You'll be fine.settings dont' rely on that power supply (psu) but on that graphics card you bought.
Don't overclock though,just to be sure although you already mentioned that you wouldn't.


For sli/crossfire would you need to upgrade that psu and your motherboard should support it as well.Which motherboard do you have?
Also in the case of going for two gpu's would i just upgrade with another r9 270.

The r9 270 is the best gpu that can run from that 430watt cx.Just play on lower settings or get a better psu first.

I saw a UFO on youtube... go figure.

Yes settings will affect power usage, if you are running a game requiring little GPU power then you'll pull little power from the wall, turning the settings down will affect it in this way, but it will use approximately all of the power all of the time on BF4.

On 'ULTRA' bf4 will get less than 42fps: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU14/931

I don't care wat partpicker says about usage,i say that with the cx 430 you will be able to use a r9 270 with that cpu and the rest of your parts.

WITHOUT OVERCLOCKING!

Just to scream back at you.:D

Like i already stated has that nothing to do with your power supply,only with the cpu+gpu.

In the next review are they at a minimum of 40fps for BF4 which imo should be playable,
http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/5969/msi-radeon-r9-270...
look for more reviews that include BF4 yourself.

What's with that "ultra" anyway? At high does it still look good and you'll still have fun.
