My new build consists of:

CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Asus M5A78L-M PLUS motherboard
AMD FX Six-Core Processor FX-6100 3.3GHz AM3+
Sapphire HD6670 graphics card
Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
ASUS 24X DVD Burner
Kingston Hyper X Blu 8 GB (2x4GB Modules) 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 XMP Desktop Memory

I tested the build outside the case with the motherboard, CPU, ram, and graphics to see if everything works. It loaded fine. And the PSU wasn't heating up or anything.

The graphics card reccomends a PSU at least 400 watts just an FYI

if it doesnt support my pc and i use it will my pc die? like what will happen if i use this psu

ive asked other people and some people say 430 watts is enough and some other people tell me it isnt enough -.- ....

This is a budget build. Please help.

I am full agreement with bigcyco1. I was pushing an i5 750 + 5770(6770 is the same thing) on a 300 watt power supply :) 

This is NOT a recommendation to use a 300 watt(very select build), but that 430 is more then fine.
