Hey guys, I have a question regarding if my power supply is enough to install a 2gb Radeon 7850.

Right now I have 4 fans, one hdd, one optical drive, and the core i5 ivy bridge. I've been getting by with the HD integrated graphics but feel it's time to upgrade!

This is my current power supply:

I know that AMD recommends a 500w power supply on their website, but I was thinking that as long as I don't worry about crossfire I would be okay. If not, what are some good recommended graphics cards (preferably under $200) that I could get with this psu? I'd mostly be using it for playing games.

Corsair CX430 V2 will well handle the HD 7850. The hd 7850 use only ~106W. Check the links
