Basically all I want to know is if the 430 Watts - Corsair CX430 V2 80 Plus Certified PSU will support this build:

Intel® Core™ i3-2120 3.30 GHz 3M Intel Smart Cache LGA1155

[CrossFireX] GIGABYTE Z77-DS3H Intel Z77 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ IRST, 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, 2x Gen3 PCIe x16, 2 PCIe x1 & 2 PCI

8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory

AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card

500GB Western Digital Caviar Black SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200 RPM HDD (Single Drive)

That's a CYA because they understand that the market is flooded with poor quality PSUs that can't deliver their rated powers. Take a look at this sytem with a highly OCd, power hungry i7 965 and a MSI stock OCd HD7850: http://www.guru3d.com/article/msi-radeon-hd-7850-power-... The system only consumed 254W at full load. Your i3 2120 and stock-clocked 7850 will consume less; probably under 200W at full load. The CX430 is more than sufficient for your PC and OC for your 7850.
