I recently built my first desktop with a Thermaltake TR 430W based on the recommendation of a friend. I'm looking to add a discrete video card, but it looks like the power supply isn't good enough for most recent cards. Is this PSU sufficient for the Radeon 6850, or would I have to get something older like a 6770 or 6670?

That PSU is overrated and not very good. I would not trust it to power anything more than a HD6770.
Thanks for the suggestions! I am running an i5-2500k with a mild overclock to 4.0 ghz so it looks like I have to go with an older card. Would an 7770 work since they have reduced power consumption?
