Yes 430W is enough for your build even with GTX 760. You won't find a modular PSU at that price range. Seasonic ECO series is discontinued , that means its old stock and they use cheap capacitors and cables aren't sleeved. And it can't be 80+ certified because its restricted to the 230V grid and 80+ Labs operate at 115V

vp550 is a decent unit and seasonic eco 500 is a good one(not avaliable on US market) which i would recommend for running a gtx760 and be able to o/c it. the s12 ii is better overall unit but i consider 430w a bit low for such config.
s12ii is also discontinued but that doesnt make it necessarily a bad unit!

Seasonic S12II Bronze is not discontinued. I find it very funny when people say that GTX 750 Ti can run on 'any' PSU which is completely wrong and when they see a system with i7 and GTX 780 a 450W PSU suddenly becomes too less which is again completely wrong.

@Akhil Potukuchi : I should say this - the labeled wattage is the least thing to be worried about a PSU

VP550 ''Japanese caps (Nippon Chemi-Con, Rubycon, Nichicon) are used in the secondary side. This is the first time I see a low-priced PSU to use such high quality caps in the secondary'' from the review. it has its flaws but it is at lest a decent unit. it has a loud fan but since you are far from maxing it out you will be ok. did you read the review?

Seasonic S12II Bronze 430 has full sleeves.

See this build made by TomsHardware:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-your-own-budg...
A GTX 770 with a 450W PSU
And the GPU is overclocked and benchmarked with different games and software


Seasonic ECO series uses Teapo capacitors and only main ATX connector is sleeved

both have the power to run your setup and any of the gpu's you mention as an upgrade, even if overclocked. i will leave that to your preferance.! (if you finally decide to upgrade to an even better gpu(280x/770) i would vote for the antec!)
