  1. Will a corsair cx 430W be enough to support a Asus GTS450 1GB DDR5 card?

    Yes, a minimum of 400w is recommended for a GTS450. The information is in the spec's on Nvidia's website here.

    Will it be safe to overclock with this psu? .Also there are two corsair cx430W models one has builder series written additionally does that make any difference.
    Thanks for helping.

    No, I would not risk it, as you're on the limits anyway in regards to wattage. The CX "builder" series are not the best PSU's, if you want to overclock I would consider a better 450-500w unit.

    Corsair make quality power supplies but the CX is the oddball of the range, its just not as good as the larger wattage models they make.

    To be safe would a coolermaster 460W extreme do the trick.

    I'd probably have the CX430 Corsair over that. Tell you what....What's your budget, and where you looking at getting them from? Link us a couple of sites and I'll pick a few out.

    If you can add another 200R's to your maximum budget, this is seriously worth considering: http://www.ebay.in/itm/SEASONIC-430...tDomain_203&hash=item19cce00442#ht_1985wt_728

    Seasonic make awesome power supplies, and it will serve you very well. Your budget does indeed make it hard. Given the options available I'd go with the Seasonic first, and the Corsair CX 430 second, with the Coolermaster unit in third place.
