Run it, watch it work, laugh at those who told you not to.

Run it, watch it fail, buy a beefier PSU.

Those are your options. Good luck bro!
I also took those options a few months ago when adding to my folding farm.
q6600 & 8800gts on a 350w folding 24/7 no problems.

That 430w should be enough just use an adapter.

I didn't overclock the GPU on that PSU; but it would probably be fine.

Thank you so much guys for the reply. I don't have to buy a new PSU so I can save money towards my college textbook.
