Might be a stretch - would my Corsair 430w be enough for this?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,

I'm in the process of combining two builds and buying some other parts for one build and I'm selling the old, but what I plan on having is:

i7 2600k
CM 212+
16GB DDR3 1600 MHz (Ripjaws)
Biostar TZ68A+
GTS 450
Xonar DX
Seagate 1TB
3 case fans
1 DVD Burner

I have a Corsair 430w PSU lying around that's essentially brand new, it might be a stretch, but is that enough to power this hardware? I don't plan on overclocking. Recommendations for PSU's if not (budget friendly, as modular as possible)?

I got the i7 at Microcenter for $280, $50 off a motherboard, sold it to a friend and made a pretty good profit, in the end, it didn't cost me much. I had plans to overclock it but lost interest.

GTS 450 because I'm not a huge gamer, I just plan on playing Borderlands 2 and the Dolphin emulator.

And yes, the CX430 PSU, that should suffice?

Thanks for the quick reply guys.
