So I'm looking to get a new power supply and I was wondering should I get this one actually

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 CMPSU-430CX 430W)
for 44.82 before rebate, and 34.82 after rebate (includes tax/shipping)

the specs on my computer are:

This is the same price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but is 80+ bronze certified and should be plenty for your build.


oh unfortunately besides the graphics card & power supply, i already brought everything else like when they were on sale etc. Though the ram is actually from my current computer, which I am just temporarily using until I find a good deal for ram. As for the power supply, the reason why I didn't look into getting this one is because the graphics card specs says it needs a minimum of 400 watts

I have the HIS HD5670 card and that Antec 380W PSU in my HTPC and it runs w/o any issues. It doesn't even come close to maxing out.
