Hi, this seems like a good place to ask.

Is a Corsair CX430 V2 (28A apparently) good enough for a Radeon HD 6750?

Just a simple Athlon Dual Core setup. 1 SATA, 1 DVD-RW, few extra bits, notably a ALFA AWUS036H USB WiFi adapter - anyone know what effect these things also have on the PSU?

Thanks.

You'll be fine. Nothing exotic in your other parts...the main draw will be your cpu and gpu. 6750 is relatively low power gpu.

Sweet. Can anyone else confirm to be sure? I've read that the AMD has it's requirements set higher than they need to be and also get conflicting reports from other sites.

Type "6750 power consumption" into Google and read reviews. They measure the actual power of a system.

The CX430 is a decent quality PSU and is actually sufficient for an HD 6850 in that build.

Your system won't be drawing more than 140~ on full load, realistically it will only be drawing roughly 120w.

I hope you're right.. I guess they have much better CPUs in the test rigs.

It's just the amperage that bothers me. I had a cheap PSU burn out quickly once.
