  1. What else is in the system?

    The CX430V2 is fine for the 7850, but it really depends on the rest of your components.

    mobo:intel dp35dp
    cpu:intel core 2 quad (q9300)
    2 gb ddr2 ram
    500gb hard disk
  3. It'd be a VERY tight squeeze, but it will work. :)

    what if i go with this gpu http://www.flipkart.com/sapphire-amd-hd-7850-1gb-oc-gddr5-1-gb-graphics-card/p/itmddaudqr4ht4a8?pid=GRCDDAUCTDYQHHME&ref=55d08f34-4581-4df9-8720-9ae5e02a24a0 will this work as well or do i go for higher watt psu like cx500v2
  5. CX500V2 would be what I recommend.

    ok and should i go for overclocked or non over clocked version of 7850, there is like 2$ difference between the two,but i have heard that overclocked gpu's generate much heat and have less life compared to non oc versions
  7. Overclocked, it's not going to affect anything.

    Better have a factory OC than you screwing the card up.

    hey man thanks for you help ,there is one more thing i would like to ask, is this psu http://www.flipkart.com/seasonic-s12ii-430-watts-psu/p/itmd5xz5bzevdbzp?pid=PSUD5XZ4PQNBPMES&ref=00b47041-6818-486a-9e87-eae8baffe102 is at same level as cx430v2 ,initially i was going for this psu but i have heard that dual rail psu not good compared to single rail psu so i decided to go for single rail psu..
  9. It's actually a better PSU, made by Seasonic instead of the CX430V2 that's made by CWT.

    The CX430V2 might also have coil whine, mine unfortunately does. :(
