Hello

I have this PSU 'Corsair CX 430 V2' which i want to use in my new system. This one has 28 amperes on its 12v rail.

So which will be the most powerful GPU that i can install in this new system?
Some of the GPU's that i have on my list are:
AMD 7850
Nvidia 660
AMD 6950

Other Config of this new system is listed below:
Intel 4670K
MSI Z87-G43
GSkill 8Gb RAM
CX 430V2
WD Black 1TB HDD

But why do you want to use the CX430 did you just buy it or is it something you had for a while?

The best card that can run on the CX430's single 6-pin PCIe power connector would be a GTX 660.

thanks for your replies

So to keep things safe i decided to go with this psu Seasonic ECO 600 watts

Due to availability issue i changed my specs to
Core i5 3570
Gigabyte B75M-D3H motherboard

But now i have one new problem

here is the pic of motherboard



Now i need to know what to put into that socket. I have these two socket on my new psu



So should i put both of them into this socket or just one.
I am basically confused between this atx_12v (2x4) and eps 8 pin connector.
