Get the answer dudewitbow a b ) Power supply July 23, 2012 7:45:34 PM more than enough, if its possible to run an i5 and a 6870 on a decent 430w psu, then a low powered HD x450 and an apu should not be costly on the psu. paddys09 July 23, 2012 8:04:21 PM Yes cx430 is plenty for a gt430. Definitely consider the cx500 if you are planning future upgrades. I dont know very much about hybrid crossfire but amd GPU's should work better with your APU. Best solution HolyCowImAnoOb July 23, 2012 8:10:56 PM The 7770 only uses 80 watts at max, youve got more than enough psu for it. and it was a pleasure paddys09 July 23, 2012 8:35:45 PM It probably will work. although Amd recommends 500w supply, better to stay within the guidelines. http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/7000/77... delluser1 a c 242 ) Power supply July 23, 2012 11:07:15 PM paddys09 said: Should be fine. for the 5450.

Do you know that the 7970 can draw 3x as much power under Furmark load ? http://ht4u.net/reviews/2012/amd_radeon_hd_7700_test/in... How about the apu? It's a pretty low power item http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/amd-fusion... Hmm, 100 watts for the 7770 running Furmark + 70 watts for the basic system running LinX 170 watts With the specs he gave us, there's not much chance of the OP ever putting a 50% load on a CX430, it's more than enough prototype18 a b ) Power supply July 24, 2012 1:09:29 PM http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Corsair-CX430-V2... Read this review and see that CX 430 can deliver a bit more than 430W. So u are set with the PSU lucarai July 30, 2012 7:19:57 AM Best answer selected by lucarai. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
