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.
I have this 550w in one of my builds with an overclocked gtx 460 and it runs pretty quiet and cool but I also have a single 140mm and (5) 120mm fans, a fan controller, OC'd CPU an SSD and 2 mech. drives. I'd recommend it 100% at this price but I know you are in India so Im not sure where you would be buying from.
I am currently looking at ebay india my budget is around 50$.I have option of buying from the local store but the price is pretty much same sometimes even expensive.
Not sure on the currency conversion.
Thats way above my budget my budget is around 2500-3000Rs.
Thanks for helping.
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.
Thanks a lot for helping.Will consider it.
No problem dude.
