Hello guys I have an extremely limited budget and I want to get a PSU for my HD 7850 I found two options within my budget limit:

CORSAIR CX430 V2 80 PLUS PSU
Thermaltake Smart m450w 80 PLUS
HEC (Gamma) 500w PSU

which one of them can run this card?
I checked system requirements of this card on the AMD website it was 500W, But I saw some threads showing that the card needs much less than 500W PSU

More about : 7850 psu

My rig is

Gigabyte H61
Core i5 2400
Kingstone 4 GB DDR3 ram
HD 7850 (Or I can downgrade to HD 7770)
I will not crossfire or overclock and I have extremely limited budget so those are the only PSUs within my limit

i would go for a Antec EA380 watts , it has one 6 pin connector and with no overlock on the cpu you should be fine overlocking the video card

Delta makes this psus, they should be fine, ive had 5 psus from this Earthwatts series and non had any issues, one EA650, Two EA500, one EA380 and one EA430

dont just expect something fancy, the PSU just work as they should
