The power supply is too weak, the minimum requirement for the 6770 is 450 Watts.

Someone has told me a 430w supply is enough to even power a 6850 though? Anyone care to add more verification?

Check the details.

Yes, it is enough to run it, but down the road, the video card may get damaged by not getting enough power.

Your processor pulls 65W and your graphic card won't exceed 150W even when heavily overclocked..

The load shouldn't stress your PSU much and will work fine

The CX430 is more than enough to run the 6770 or 6850. Your whole system won't even pull 200w, and that's with everything maxed out all at the same time.

Alright, so the 430w should be fine. Everything else is okay too? Hoping to nab everything tonight so I can build next weekish.

Aren't you going to wait for the Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales?

Those minimum psu recommendations are for stupid people who buy ultra budget psu that are peak rated

A psu like the Corsair is rated at 430 watts continuously and wont break a sweat running that computer which is never going to draw more than 200 watts total .

Your RAM needs to be 1.5 volt or less according to intel . Cant see the models spec's , but on Newegg you can filter by voltage too .
You wont have an improvement in frame rates by using 8 gig either so if you need to save money then 2 x2 gig is fine

Oh I tend to multitask a bit... while playing games, I don't know how much more ram would help...

Here's the link for the G. Skill: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If 4 gig will still be able to handle multitasking pretty well then I'll get 4 gigs.

would get these for the 4gigs if I don't get the 8gigs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

After this ram question is answered, is this build good to go? :)

(for some reason the edit button isn't showing up on my computer to edit the last post)

alternatively I could do this coolmaster 460w power supply which is the same price as the 430w. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
but I 'm not familiar with the reliability of coolmaster

So yeah, just need to double check on the RAM and this and then I'm going to buy all the parts tonight. :)  Thanks.

Alright thanks I'll be getting the 8gb g. skill ram and the cosair. Everything checks out alright though? (ram, power, etc) I just want to make sure before I buy and then have to return to newegg because I'm dumb and didn't double check or something. Having both the i3 and the corsair on sale right now is great.
