Corsair cx430 430w sufficient for GTX 650Ti?

Hi, I'm in the market for a new video card however I only have a corsair cx430 430w power supply. I'm looking for a video card that can play starcraft 2 on ultra settings. Under $200, 27" monitor, I'm not playing any other games, and only running 1 monitor, full hdmi size port.

What video cards do you recommend? I'm considering buying the GTX 550Ti or 650Ti but I'm not sure if my psu can handle the gpu or if I really need the 650 ti.

Specs:
i5-3570k
ASRock Z75 Pro3
Samsung 840 120GB
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB(2 x 4GB)DDR3 1600
Corsair CX430 430W
LIAN LI PC-7HX
Dell S2740L 27" IPS-LED Monitor

Please help me, thanks.

  1. you PSU can run GTX 650. because only 225 W Power Supply is Required to run a 660. But yes, you have to spend minimum 219$ for this.

    And if you really cant spend anything above 200$ then go with the 560ti it is also a good card
