would the 430 watt psu safely run the Hd 5750 seeing as how its 20 watts below reccomended?

Yes this is a quality PSU with a conservative power rating although more powerful than many generic 450-500watt PSU´s which GPU manufacturers recommendations are based on

Recommended powers figures are actually very inflated to compensate for all the crap power supplies out there the 5750 could even run on that 380 watt no problem the 430 is even enough for a 5770/6850

wow, so most of the numbers involved in computer things are often to high for what is actually needed
