Hi guys,
I will be going to buy a new pc in some days. Here are the specs.

INTEL CORE i3 2120 3.30Ghz

INTEL DH61WW (LGA 1155)

KINGSTON DDR3 4GB-1333

SAMSUNG DVDRW 22X DL SATA

SEAGATE 500GB 3.5" 16MB

AMD Radeon HD 7770 His.

COOLER MASTER ELITE 371 PSU 420W

Now i am really confused with the power supply. It is 420watts. But i dont know what is the brand it might be thermal master 420w psu.

Will that power supply be enough to run the pc?

Or i should buy ANTEC BP430 430WATTS CONTINUOUS POWER PSU.

And yeah i have limited number of products available in my country..

Your help is much appreciated.

Thermal Master? I'd stay away. The PSU is one area where it is a very bad idea to go cheap on or you'll risk the consequences.

If there's a site you buy from I can suggest a PSU.

Thermal Master is cooler master's really low end line of PSUs that they sell with their cases because they are too crappy to sell alone.

The build you linked to that was using the 420 W PSU mentioned above was using the Intel built in graphics, your graphics card presents significantly more load. I would step it up to the Corsair CX430, its more expensive than the BP430 but also a fair bit better. Stay clear of the cooler master eXtreme Power Plus line up, they seem like they are priced well, but they are priced really poorly for a dull box full of crappy fireworks.

Yeah a 7770 will handle that resolution just fine.

Is that the Antec? That should be fine. And yes the Antec 300 is a good choice.
