    If you change that HD 6950 to HD 7850, that 430W PSU will work.
  3. what if I upgraded it to 500w?
  4. It still won't work because the CX430 doesn't supply 430W.
  5. so what does it supply?
  6. In the 300 watts range.
  7. O.o what power supply do you reccomend for around the same price?
    Edit: Will an xfx atx 450watt do the job well?
