Antec 430, need advice now!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
On newegg right now......shell shocker...

Antec 430 for 27.99 after rebates? Is this good enough for a 95 watt x6 and a gtx460?????

That PSU has 2 +12v rails 17A and 16A which combines to 30A(no it's not just adding 17 and 16) and the GTX 460 needs 24A on the +12V rail, in theory it should be fine even though Nvidia recommends 450W for the GTX460

In short..you can. Not sure if I would overclock though.

The 1100t pulls in 201w and the 460 pulls in 291 from the wall. Now take efficiency in to account which should be say 82% on that unit and that system will be pulling around 403w at full load. I'm gonna say no TBH.

Well I ordered it anyways. Read where several others have had systems similar to what I'm building, and the watt requirements ended up being less that 350...one was actually around 200. I'll probably got with a 5570 or 550ti anyways, since she isn't a big gamer.

Got the psu and an ASUS dvd burner for 47$ after the rebate!

No they don't. You're misreading whatever review you're pulling those numbers from.
