I'm running a Phenom II X6 1055t @ stock speeds, a XFX Radeon HD 6770, MSI NF750-G55, Zalamn CNPS 9900 cpu cooler, Thermaltake element g case, one 500gb WD hdd, one sata dvd burner. My psu is from a Raidmax Smilodon case and runs my current system fine, but since it came with a case and from what i heard with raidmax psus they rn't the best. Was wondering if a Corsair CX 430 would be better and at least be able to handle a small OC and still run everything without failure. Wondering as newegg has it right now for $20 after rebate. My other choice would be a OCZ 600 watt which on same deal on newegg is $40 after rebate.

The CX430 with its 28A on the 12V rail and one 75W 6-pin PCIe power connector is sufficient for your system and moderate OCs to the CPU/GPU. Sweet deal at $20 and the ModXstream is a great deal at $40; the OCZ is also sufficient for your build/OC.
