430W PSU good enough for this build?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello,
My friend's getting a new PC, and we wanted to know if a good quality 430W PSU is enough for this build:
i3 3220
GTX 660 Superclocked
ASRock B75M-GL
Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200rpm
G.Skill NT 8GB RAM
He doesn't have any OC plans so far.
Thanks

Very well is enough, on 450w you can run a 3770k and gtx680 rig with a couple fans, hdds, and have watts to spare. So you should be good! Just get a quality 430w that will actually do 430w.

It's a very solid low output unit, it could power a GTX 680 on the setup. wink.gif

If he's in europe, the G-360 is similarly priced to the Pure Pwer 430, and i'd definately prefer the seasonic of these two.
