Trying to list all power consuming items for best advice...

I have checked corsair site with thier calculator and it says the 430w builder psu would power mine no problem but let me know what you think on a budget but dont want to go cheap again (hence the story next) i can get the corsair $40 shipped

story- lmao i did the no-no and went cheap on psu bought a blue star (haha) 650w psu all was fine for 2 days everything was running great well while hackin and slashin through dungeon siege 3 on max and 1920x1080 on my 40" hdtv hdmi all of a sudden I hear a frightning crackle see white sparks and smell that only electronics burning smell.. and everything goes black no screen no blue lights omg. So I break out my stock psu 300w delta 2x +12v 18a rails pull out the blue crap star and slap in the delta thank the heavens nothing else fried the gts and all else still works perfect that was close. Of course now until I get a proper psu in my budget Im usin the stock delta and an hd4670 for you can laugh and tease and let me know if the corsair will do what I need or advise as to what will do for my poor budget.

you won't break 250w total system power while gaming. the corsair will do the job no problem
