Thermaltake 430w? No.
What is the rest of your specification and what of a budget?

I would lean toward a no... considering the output on the 12 volt rails.

+3.3V@20A, +5V@24A, +12V1@14A, +12V2@15A, -12V@0.3A, +5VSB@2A

But for me to be exact, I need to know all about your PC. If it was a store bought OEM like Dell or HP, tell me the make and model and any other upgrades you have done.

If you build it yourself, please list all the components.

CPU? Board? RAM? How many hard drives and optical drives?

Please be specific.

A reference clocked GeForce GTX 460 will draw a maximum of 13.3 Amps from the +12 Volt rail(s) under full GPU load.

I wouldn't recommend it with that power supply unit.

The PSU you have is manufactured by HEC/Compucase. It is a version of the 300W HEC unit re-marked by Thermaltake as having 430W wattage. Xbit labratories reported that at a load of about 380W, the PSU’s switching transistor overheated and burned down in the power supply.

NO NO NO that unit will most likely not even power up connected to a 460.
