This is my first build in a long time so I need a little help. I am wondering if the Corsair CX430 power supply will be enough for my setup. Its a great deal and I've maxed out my funding. Im a college student that cant go over budget. (I sold my laptop to fund this.) All the PSU calculators that were recommended by toms says it will be fine with a 430w. This is what I have already...

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 250GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer

At stock clocks you should be just fine with that 430 (the Corsair 430 is a great PSU).
If you start overclocking you should be OK as long as you don't push it too hard. You should be able to put moderate overclocks on the CPU and GPU without any problem.

Thanks for the info. i figure its only $25 after mail in rebate so when i decide to overclock it when i have more money to buy a nice heat sink and such, i can buy another PS and not worry about wasting much money on this one!
